Smidge Magic Dirt Stonewell Shiraz
Colour – black core with magenta rim.
Nose – vibrant and perfumed with red and purple fruits, wet stone and earth with subtle lavender and pepper
Palate – the early palate is quite restrained then builds with plums and spice and then remains juicy throughout, balanced with fresh acid and fine focussed tannins
Cellaring The 2013 Stonewell, although restrained in its youth, is balanced with plenty of stuffing and will continue to benefit from a few years in the cellar and can be enjoyed to 2030 if cellared well.

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 although not every subregion is selected every year if the true representation is not seen.
