Bird of Fire is an extraordinary dessert wine with great character.
Country of Origin: Australia
Bird of Fire, previously called Flying Finix, is a rich and elegant label of Botrytis dessert wine inspired by the long-lived phoenix. In Greek mythology, this mystical bird is reborn from the ashes of its predecessor, becoming a symbol of renewal and life.
The effect of Botrytis, which is actually a type of mould, is a rotting process of the fruit on the vine, sapping the berries of moisture. Yet, despite the seemingly damaged fruit, the process effectively concentrates the sugars and flavours within the grapes. From the decay of the fruit the wine, Bird of Fire, of extraordinary character is created, a highly sweet, rich and opulent dessert wine.
