Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz 2009 “deep, rich and brooding wine”

Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz 2009 is consistently praised as being an incredible wine for an incredible price.  Here’s another great review:   “From the Eden Valley and a patch of shaley schist rock bed comes this deep, rich and brooding wine. It is made with minimal winemaker intervention using wild yeasts and a gentle basket press to squeeze the grapes – all buzz words that can add extra dollars to the price of a wine, which makes this a lot of wine for just $17. It smells of black and blueberries, almond nougat and cloves. It‘s medium-to-full-bodied and has a deep dark-purple colour. It (the Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz 2009) has flavours of blackberry cordial, stewed plums and hints of black pepper along with a nice meatiness. Fine-grained tannins and slight herbal notes finish the wine off. This is a seriously good price for a lovely winter tipple. ”  Ben Thomas The Weekly Review May 2010
