Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Shiraz 2013

Employs the appasimento technique, whereby some of the fruit is dried prior to fermentation, for extra concentration and richness. Additionally the wine sees 35% whole bunch inclusion, adding depth structure.

Techniques employed show their hands here: concentrated black fruit, with a tail of Eden Valley elegance.

Silken smooth, glossy, concentrated; pastille like, generous in its flavour and execution. For all that ripeness, it's a wine of balance, depth and perfect for a cool evening with its all encompassing manner.

Deceptive black fruited length just seals the deal. 93
