Magic Dirt is one of Australia's most acclaimed wines and the pinnacle of the Smidge Wines range. Its 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 vintages consistently receiving gold reviews from the James Halliday Australian Wine Companion.

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.

Quantities are extremely limited and are highly sought after by those who savour quality wine.
