Winemakers Notes

About - We all have that one serious wine loving friend. You know, the one who over complicates wine, the one who’s tasted their way through Bordeaux, the one who thinks they are ‘cultured’, the one who’s cellar is brim full of insanely expensive Pinot. Well they probably wouldn’t fit in here with the wines from A Good Dirt. Here we solely believe in good time wines made with an inquisitive nature yet delivering heavily on accessibility and quality. We lower that serious cloak, and offer a range of session-able wines for any occasion, anywhere-anytime. A Good Dirt is a tip of the hat to traditionalism, but with eyes firmly looking to enhancing the good times. 

On a slightly more serious note: Like anything in life, to thrive you need to start with solid foundations. Our wines are produced by vineyards that flourish, growing in the soils of our special patches of ‘A Good Dirt’.  - A Good Dirt Wines.

Vintage Conditions - A mild, December and January with cool nights saw ideal conditions prevail towards the end of the 2016 growing season. The result was a measured pace of ripening which ensured the balanced development of sugar and flavours in the fruit along with the retention of natural grape acid before some later season warmth allowed some real fruit presence to develop.


Colour: Dark ruby, with purple, black hues.


Bouquet: A deep mélange of compote like brambly, blue and black fruits show alongside subtle glimpses of sumac and pepper spice.


Palate: A fresh, supple attack of blackberries and dark plums rolls through deep into the palate, still showing strong and lively all the way through to the finish. This is accompanied by a fresh mid palate line and a super fine tannin frame allowing the wine to focus for a long, balanced finish.


Cellaring: Drink to 2024
