MDI Wines

New South Wales | Murray Darling

Our Review

MDI Wines is a celebration of winemaker Kevin McCarthy’s enduring love affair with the people, land and wines of the Murray Darling. His first up-close, hands-on grapes experience occurred in 2002 when he bought Murray Darling sangiovese to fill otherwise empty tanks after a disastrously small vintage on the Peninsula at his then winery, T’Gallant. Ever since he has returned to Mildura to work with growers and winemakers on projects like T’Gallant’s Juliette, Quealy’s Fionula and a little-known project, TGQ. With MDI – the name comes from the postcode for greater Mildura, 3501, which translates in Roman numerals to MMMDI – he embraces the alternative grape varieties of the region to create approachable skin-contact wines. In '22, he will release Skin Editions, small-batch wines with a focus on skin contact made from grapes such as picolit, ansonica, refosco, ribolla and moscato giallo. -JENI PORT
