Magic Dirt has been inspired by the various sub regions’ terroir of South Australia’s Barossa Valley. After several years of trials, we originally chose three subregions that show profound differences, but still reflect the true qualities of great Barossa Valley Shiraz. All vineyards selected are trellised with a single cordon, single catch wire, and planted with the clone 1654.
In 2012 the range was extended with a wine from a vineyard on Mengler’s Hill in Eden Valley, and in 2013 a fifth wine was included from Willunga in McLaren Vale. The philosophy has remained the same…the barrel selected truly showcases the vineyard it is from and not every subregion is selected every year if the representation is not seen.
Black core with deep red rim.The richest and fullest of the Barossa Valley vineyards, the aromas are fresh and lifted with black and purple fruits, meaty notes, graphite, earth and spice.This wine explodes with a fresh and juicy entry of dark fruits, chocolate and earth which carry through the palate and then fine spicy tannins pull everything together to a long seamless finish. Cellaring There is a lot going on here and as a result, I feel that this wine will drink well 2016 – 2035.
