Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial pebbles and infused by the minerality of quartz schists, the opportune vines yield a small range of wines, made by environmental.. Bounty of bendigo goldfields»

The Mt McKenzie site is subject to traditional biological farming, a diet of composts with native grasses and flora as ground cover, low water input and natural sprays to keep disease under control. Vines eighteen years of age are grown to clay loam over a shaley schist rock bed, trained to single wire trellis. A very minimalistic handling includes a component of whole bunch, open top vinification and wild yeast ferments, soft pumpovers, hand plunging and an old fashioned basket press. Components complete their ferments and eighteen months maturation in prior use Frost Dodger barrels and seasoned French Cadus et Radoux oak barriques, before bottling, unfiltered and unfined.
Bright scarlet colour. Bursting with deep aromatics, perfumed, floral notes, dark fruits and sweet spice. Vibrant palate of mulberry, rasberries and cherry, espresso and chocolate, festive spice and all things nice, finishing long and complete on a length of fine grained tannins. Expect all that the Torzi Mathews style represents, alongside braised goat or piquant buddhist casserole.
