Magic Dirt was originally 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 although not every subregion is selected every year if the true representation is not seen.
The bouquet of pure, fresh-picked wild blackberry, becomes the essence of the full-bodied palate. Oak maturation has rounded the tannins to the point where they are welded to the fruit.
