This wine is made from the "Iona" vineyard near Warburton in the Upper Yarra Valley, the home of Wild Fire Wines. The site is at an altitude of 300 metres on the lower slopes of Mount Victoria, on red mountain soil over a clay base. It is naturally fermented, has medium weight and excellent magenta colour, fine tannins and perfect acidity with strawberry/truffle/spice aromas and a long finish.
This wine is excellent as a stand-alone drink, but it pairs wonderfully well with tacos, veal, chicken, duck and any dish where the flavours of both the wine and food are not overpowering. The wine has developed very well in the bottle and will continue to evolve over the next 5-10 years.
