Reviews

The Wine front – Gary Walsh May 2021

Simple pleasures done well, is something I appreciate in wine. This is perfumed and a little musky and grapey, lemon rind and apple, then it pulls all chalky and saline, tastes pretty much dry, sports a fine set of bubbles, and has a pretty long salted cracker aftertaste. In terms of quality, it’s up there with the best examples, which may or may not be damning it with faint praise, but gee it’s a lovely thing to drink.

So refreshing.

Ozwine Review – Andrew Graham MW August 2021

Can Dom Torzi do no wrong? This is hood Prosecco, from the Eden Valley. Believe it.
Has an apple juice fruit varietal character – much more low yielding than your usual Prosecco and it shows.
Maybe a little broad on the finish compared to the piercing energy of the best from Valdobbiadene, but the intensity of this is excellent.

The finish too is long and varietal. High quality.
