Tasting notes:
'Beautiful purity of limes and ripe gooseberry, with tropical, floral and fine herbal notes, ruby grapefruit and white pear drop on the finish. This is cool climate Sauvignon blanc – vibrant, mineral, elegant, balanced and delicate, with a long, layered and complex finish.' – Winemaker

Alc: 13.6% | RS: 2.41 g/L | TA: 6.4 g/L | PH: 3.31

Tasting notes on the previous 2019 vintage:
'A range of soils & clones in cool ripening conditions impart lovely fruit purity with precise, clean-cut, lingering freshness to 2019. A splash of naturally oak-fermented semillon & sauvignon adds palate weight. Return to exuberant form after 2018 (4 stars, 87 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'This very lightly wooded estate Sauvignon Blanc deserves its many plaudits, consistently delivering plenty of flavour at a fair price. Combined with 3% Semillon, it has flavours of passion fruit and white pepper, good texture and a racy, crunchy finish. Drink 2020-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 91/100

About Iona:
In 1997, Andrew Gunn purchased the beautiful Geelbeksvlei farm located 420 meters above sea-level, overlooking the Elgin Valley. This apple and pear farm was no longer proving to be profitable, and so with the advantageous location of the farm, Andrew decided to plant vines and pursue winemaking. Its high altitude and close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean results in a cool mesoclimate which has a moderating influence and results in consistent quality.
