  • THE BRIEF
  • Prosecco... from the Eden Valley? No, you ain't dreaming, but if anyone can nail this classic Italian bubbles, it is Dominic Torzi. This is the third incarnation, and possibly the best one yet. It is all about freshness, with the base fruit coming from some newly planted Glera vines in the higher elevations of the Eden foothills.

    It has plenty of that saline, cantaloupe, musk and apple cider vibe going on, but it also has the citrus and chalk, and shortbread cookie thing too. Finished dry, with a kick of zippy acids, this is wicked drinking. If this isn't a staple for the coming Summer in the My Wine Guy offices (with requisite Aperol poured alongside) then we're in trouble. Get. On. It.

    Nice work Dominic - good to see more Australian winemakers pushing the boundaries and finding their niche.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • 5,300 bottles produced. Hand picked, whole bunch pressed and natural cold settling for 10 days then racked with little solids for natural ferment at 12c for 4 weeks with lees aging for a further 4 weeks for added texture, roundness and complexity. Final base wine completion was transferred to tank for pressurised secondary fermentation to produce its natural occuring fine bubbly beads (Prosecco’s traditional Martinotti / Charmat method)

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Beautifully frothy and bright with a greenish streak with an excellent persistent bead. Aromatically appley with stone fruits, lime and orchard blossom flowers. Wonderfully bright & dry, fresh, soft & rounded, with excellent acidity, texture, weight & persistence.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Torzi Matthews is a food and winemaking partnership between Domenic Torzi and Tracy Matthews which began in 1996 when they stumbled across a small, frost-pocketed hollow in the beautiful Mt McKenzie, Eden Valley and fell in love with the area for its remoteness and its diverse thin soils. Domenic and Tracey run the winery with one guiding principal: that their land produce low yields of fruit which in turn translate into flavoursome European style wines – the style of wines needed to match their Mediterranean heritage and food.

    GARY WALSH - THE WINE FRONT


    It’s about as good an example of Prosecco as you’d get, to my tastes. It’s dry and briny, with fine bubbles and gentle chalky texture, bright fruit, clean lines, a musky perfume in there along with ripe lemon and green pear. The finish is very refreshing, clean and crunchy. It’s very excellent. So smashable, and not tiring. Highly recommended.
