‘2016 wasn’t the best vintage for Sauvignon Blanc in South Africa, but this sappy, crunchy Elgin classic is as well made as ever, showing herbal, grapefruity freshness and lots of tangy, mouth-watering acidity. Impressive given the size of the blend. 2017-19’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

‘Intense and lively with grapefruit and herb on the nose. Pristine with lovely precision on the intense palate which shows tight, crisp fruit and a touch of herbiness, as well as some salinity. Very driven and focused. Pure.’ – Jamie Goode, Wineanorak.com, 91/100

‘Including 4% Semillon, this wine from Elgin producer Iona is extraordinarily expressive right now with notes of granadilla and pineapple to the fore on the nose but also lime and a little jasmine. The palate is fairly bursting with fruit offset by racy acidity, the finish long and dry. Just about critic proof.’ – Christiaan Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 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.
