Magic Dirt Willunga McLaren Vale Shiraz 2016
Magic Dirt is one of Australia’s most acclaimed wines and the pinnacle of the Smidge Wines range. Its name reflects one of the great secrets of great winemaking – 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.
"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."
