'Matured for 12 months in 300- and 500-litre barrels, 30% new. Compelling aromatics of red and black berries, musk, vanilla and a hint of reduction. The palate has good depth of fruit, vibrant acidity and crunchy tannins. Rich and flavourful.' – Winemag Prescient Pinot Noir Report 2020, Top 10

'Highlands is an estate blend of three blocks at Iona. Aged in 28% new wood, this is a tangy, savoury, juicy Pinot Noir with red cherry and pomegranate fruit, a hint of forest floor and savoury, fresh tobacco tannins. Drink 2021-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 91/100

'Perfumed with a floral nose of rose petals, black and red cherries, strawberries and underlying spice notes. The palate is textured, succulent and complex, with a long savoury finish. Vibrant acidity and fine grained chalky tannins make this a powerful and exceptional age worthy wine. This is classic, focussed Pinot Noir.' – Winemaker

Producer information 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.
