About This Wine
Torzi Matthews is well known for producing some of South Australia's best value Shiraz and this Mystic Park Shiraz is already attracting a big following.
From Springton sub region of the Barossa, the 2021 Torzi Matthews Mystic Park Shiraz is produced via a combination of whole berry and 25% whole bunch natural vineyard yeast ferment in small open top fermenters. Basket pressed into seasoned 500 litre French oak barrels, this is bottled unfiltered.
Lovely lifted perfumed aromatics of violets, spice and black cherry are offered up on the nose. The palate is approachable yet well-weighted with blackberry, chocolate flavours that are supported by subtle spice and super fine tannins. Another cracking value Shiraz from Torzi Matthews that is destined to be enormously popular.
Barossa Valley Wine
The Barossa Valley wine region has historically and currently still is one of Australia's most prestigious premium wine producing regions. Located just 60km north east of Adelaide city centre, the climate there is very hot and dry which is perfect for the big bold reds the area is famous for.
A straight Shiraz is what Barossa is most well known for, however Rhone blends, such as Shiraz Cabernet are also very popular. While much less prevalent, white wines (Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon) are planted on the higher altitude hillsides where the ocean breeze cools temperatures down to a level suitable for producing these varieties as well.
Some of Australia's earliest Shiraz plantings can be found here dating as far back as the 1850's. While not always a guarantee of quality, it might be worth seeking out and trying one of the region's "old vine shiraz" if you haven't yet.
