Sorry, but I couldn’t help myself – this new Torzi Matthews Schist Rock Shiraz 2021 is another winner.
We need more wines like this, really.
It smells real. Vinous. Regional.There’s Eden Valley blackberry and truffle sausage fruit, the palate mid-weight with a certain black fruit earthen savoury edge. It’s not thick or concentrated, and indeed is a little tart. But this is a $25 Shiraz – it’s not trying to be a serious red, it’s meant to be a good, honest drink with heart.
It fits that bill perfectly. A great vintage too (although more savoury).
Best drinkin: over the next five years. 17.7/20, 92/100. 14.5%, $25. Torzi Matthews website. Would I buy it? Worth a glass or two.
