Magic Dirt by Smidge Wines

Magic Dirt is one of Australia's most acclaimed wines and the pinnacle of the Smidge Wines range. It's name reflects one of the secrets of great wine making - the quality that the terroir brings to the wine. Each vintage is inspired by the sub regional terroir of South Australia's wine regions with all vineyards selected trellised with a single cordon, single catch wire and planted with the clone 1654. Magic Dirt wines represent the skill of master winemaker Matt Wenk with every vintage receiving gold reviews from the James Halliday Australian Wine Companion since 2017. Quantities are extremely limited and are highly sought after by those who savour quality wine.   

"Deep red clay/loam mottled with small pieces of quartz and ironstone. The wine expands on the back-palate and finish with ripe, persistent tannins. The shape of the wine in the mouth is wider than its Barossa siblings, but not as piercing. Dark chocolate makes a mark, but not to extremes."

"From a block of red-brown clay loam with small pieces of ironstone and quartz. It is a wine of extreme length, rich with black and blue fruits, yet it achieves this without any sign of effort. Finesse on a high level."

"From Smidge's estate vineyard, the soil deep red clay/loam with small fragments of quartz and ironstone. Standard vinification, the result, like its McLaren Vale sibling, a wine that explores every corner of the mouth, ripe, slightly fluffy tannins the standard bearers."

"This isn't a best barrels series, it's a selection of the barrel from a particular vineyard that most truly reflects the terroir of the vineyard, here 40yo vines on a west-facing slope at 360m grown by six generations, matured in 3yo French barriques for 30 months. Exotic black fruits, spices, licorice aromas and flavours. A full-bodied wine of power and intensity, the tannins akin to built-in cupboards."
