|Trellis System||Single wire|
|Yield per Vine||5 kg / 4 ton per acre|
|Wine Making||Hand picked, whole bunch pressed and natural cold settling for 12 days then racked with little solids for natural ferment at 13c for 4 weeks with lees aging for a further 4 weeks for added texture, roundness and complexity. Final super charged base wine completion was transferred to tank for pressurised secondary fermentation to produce its natural occurring fine bubbly beads (Prosecco’s traditional Martinotti / Charmat method).|
|Vintage||Very mild through spring and summer, with good top-up rainfall, a mild long dry summer has produced silver green streaked fruit of amazing flavours and natural holding acidity sees this 2022 Prosecco release continue its stardom qualities.
Beautifully frothy and bright with a greenish sliver streak with excellent persistent bead. Aromatically lively with stone fruits, lime and white flowers. Wonderfully bright with orchard fruits, melon, apples and lime. Finishes dry, fresh & rounded, with excellent acidity, texture, weight & persistence.
Indaily SA – Tony Love November 2022
Dom Torzi and Tracy Matthews (Torzi Matthews Wines) tap into their estate vineyard for this – they’ve been making Vigna Cantina Prosecco as a single vintage wine for 10 years, and developed a style that shows more complex characters than many others, a result of some time spent on its spent yeast lees to develop a subtle plushness in the mouth-feels. Saline notes to begin then lovely crisp fruits in the palate, lemon and apple as a classic combo with the faintest of bitter lemon senses in the finish. Texture and flavour on song.
The Wine Front – Gary Walsh January 2023
I’d maybe drink sparkling wine (of any style) only a handful of times per year, though I do really like this offering from Torzi.
It’s dry, it’s flavoursome, it has no hard edges or abrasion, with a gentle almost silky and creamy texure, a saline complexity, fine bubbles and a long dry slightly grainy finish. Outside of that it has some lime leaf and floral perfume, lemon zest, finger lime and green apple, maybe oatmeal, and drinks a charm.
