Torzi Matthews Frost Dodger Shiraz 2008

The Torzi Matthews’ wines are something of a favourite at The Wine Front, though the Schist Rock Shiraz often gets the nod over the Frost Dodger … or it has in the past couple of years. Jumped at this when it came in though.

Lots of flavour – naturally. Deceptive amount of fine, ripe tannin too. It tastes of boysenberries and licorice, tar and assorted dried flowers. It’s lavishly perfumed and feels soft on your tongue, though the more you taste it the more the wine’s tannin structure impresses itself. A ‘yum’ wine, for sure. It has some sweet, toffeed characters too, but that’s part of the wine’s shtick. I like this release.
