‘Beautiful nose: ripe, full and aromatic with rich melon and pear notes. The palate has some rich melon fruit as well as herbiness and lovely fresh grapefruit and spicy minerality. Fresh and crisp yet with richness of fruit.’ – Jamie Goode, Wineanorak.com, 92/100

‘The superb 2010 Sauvignon Blanc has a very Loire-like, flinty bouquet with impressive delineation; imbued with a tangible “coolness” you might say. The palate is very well defined with subtle apricot and white peach notes behind the ripe gooseberry fruit. With attractive harmony towards the finish, this represents a very fine Elgin Sauvignon. Drink now-2015. Owned by Andrew Gunn who named his estate after a Scottish island, Iona is hidden down a long dirt track in Elgin and its long incline gives a good idea of their high altitude (450m) vineyards, affording a spectacular view across the valley. Here they exploit the long growing season to create relatively low alcohol wines brimming with poise and tension.’ – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 90/100

Producer information A unique phenomenon happens at Iona. The combination of the short distance from the freezing Atlantic Ocean and the rapid increase in altitude causes the prevailing summer South East wind to roll across the vines, forming misty clouds that blanket the farm on warm days. This protects the grapes from the African sun – allowing filtered sunlight into the canopy – resulting in slow ripening with perfect acidity, moderate alcohol and beautifully developed flavours.
