Description

"Typically, this is extraordinary value." Mike Bennie once wrote on the Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz, and the 2020 is again absolutely bang on, if a touch cooler and lighter than previous releases.

This is right in the sweet-spot for the Barossa/Eden Valley lover. It's ripe but balanced, the focus on the luscious fruit the region is famous for rather than oak.

Chocolate, plums, a svelte carpet of moreish tannin, it's just spot on for your weekday Shiraz.

Estate single vineyard wine grown in the chilly surrounds of Mount McKenzie in the Eden Valley, Barossa This label represents our rendition of Eden Valley, Barossa Shiraz which is the non dried portion fruit that of Frost Dodger Shiraz and is aged in ex Frost Dodger barrels.


Expect dark berry, plum, chocolate sticky date pudding and
liquored cherry undertones. Plump full palate will nice rich berry and chocolatey notes on the palate, with creamy fine tannins to finish.

92 Points - Seem to have missed a 2019 vintage, though maybe there never was one. Anyway, most often I like to drop a cube of ice into my red wine before drinking. Cools it nicely and kind of enhances the flavour.

Intense and packed with flavour. Ripe dark cherry, dark fruit cake and spice, a little violet and dried mint. It’s full-bodied, beefy and spicy, fine chalky tannin, dark chocolate and cherry, with a pretty long ripe finish. Very elemental as at now, with heaps of stuffing, and good potential - Gary Walsh.

Torzi Matthews

Some years back, noted Australian wine writer Philip White called Domenic Torzi 'Australia's Best Bargain Winemaker'. Today, that statement still could not be more accurate.

The wines from Dom Torzi and Tracy Matthews are some of the best buys in the Barossa Valley and the country. Alongside their excellent classic range of old vine Barossa Shiraz and Eden Valley Riesling, they make a small amount of fascinating Italian variety wines, inspired by their Italian heritage.

At every price point, these wines hugely and consistently overdeliver and are simply a must-buy for any lover of honest, delicious Barossan wines.

"You’d have to put Dom Torzi’s Torzi Matthews wines into the ‘some of best value/most consistent wines in the country’ list, right near the shiny top. A touch of magic. An eye on drinkability. Considered vineyard sources. Gentle overlay of winemaking. He gets it. Really gets it." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
