Heathcote in Central Victoria has long had an envious reputation for producing wines of power and grace, wines that speak of their strong connection with the region's famous Cambrian soils and the rugged landscape from which they spring. The Mount Ida vineyard was first planted in the mid-1970s but was decimated by the Ash Wednesday fires of 1983. The vines took several years to recover and with additional planting in 1991, today produce wines of incredible concentration and regional definition.
The wines are made in a traditional manner allowing the site to manifest clearly in the glass. Characters of blood plum, cherry and raspberry high-tones mesh seamlessly with dark chocolate, liquorice and subtle, well-seasoned French oak providing the drinker with endless pleasure both today, and for many years into the future.
