Eden Valley – South Australia
Eden valley is situated besides the Barossa region and the vineyards are between 400 to 500 meters above sea level. Due to the elevation, Eden is not as hot as Barossa and this allow other varietals to flourish in this area. Besides Shiraz the region is know for Riesling and Chardonnay.
Torzi Matthews, a food and winemaking partnership between Domenic Torzi and Tracy Matthews have passion and the firm conviction of appreciating the value of heritage tradition in the crafting of their wines and extra virgin olive oils. Domenic is a fifth generation Calabrian – Abruzzese stock and grew up on the Adelaide Plains working for the family’s market gardens as for Tracy she was born and raised in Sydney’s Newcastle with a long career in hospitality. In 1996 Tracy and I stumbled across a small, frost-pocketed hollow in the beautiful Mt McKenzie, Eden Valley and fell in love with the area for its remoteness and its diverse thin soils. Our Eden Valley Riesling employs our European non-interventional methods with hand picked, whole bunch press free run juice fermented naturally by the indigenous yeasts from the vineyard.
