The Smidge Hudini McLaren Vale Shiraz this wine is rich in colour with a black core and magenta rim. Dark plums, chocolate, Kirsch, mocha, cedar spice, jump from the glass with a hint of subtle char and anise.

On the palate, the dark fruits continue with subtle oak and mochca notes floating through the palate finishing balanced and long with fine tannins. This Shiraz was sourced from our Estate vineyard in the Willunga area to the South of McLaren Vale on a block of deep red clay/loam with an even spread of quartz and slate shale. Although a relatively young vineyard (10 yo), the vines get plenty of attention to ensure they produce fruit of the highest quality possible. They are shoot thinned early, and in conjunction with the foliage wires, these measures ensure an open canopy allowing light ingress and air movement resulting in even ripening and low disease pressure.

Fermentation was even and on average lasted roughly 9 days with a maximum temperature of 28°C. Total time on skins was 16 days. Upon pressing, the free run and pressings were blended to tank. After 24 hours, the wine was racked to 2-4 year old French barriques for 18 months, during which malolactic fermentation occurred and the wines were racked twice. Prior to bottling the batches were blended and fined, but not filtered.
