Description

Overview: Established in 1997, Iona Vineyards is a family-owned wine farm located 1,450 feet above sea level overlooking the picturesque Elgin Valley. With the Atlantic Ocean a mere 2 miles away, this unique location invites sea breezes that make it one of the coolest micro climates in the Western Cape. This results in the grapes being on the vine two months longer than most Cape vineyards, thus resulting in beautifully developed flavor profiles.

Accordingly, Iona produces some of the best Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapes in the New World. Iona is also blessed with the incredibly talented winemaker, Werner Muller, who has 12 Iona harvests under his belt. The owners of Iona, Andrew and Rozy Gunn, believe that an integral part of their success is their people. All Iona employees are shareholders and receive pension funds, education and social support. Their philosophy is that they would rather employ people than machines; and the winemaker is the custodian of the fruit.

Tasting Notes: The creamy notes of yogurt and a hint of vanilla hits your nose and then green apples and lemons permeate the bouquet. On the palate you get notes of green apples and limes first and then fresh greek yogurt coats the tongue finishing it off with a lemon peel bite.

Pairing: This wine has body so it would go well with creamy pasta dishes, creamy cheeses such as Brie and Camembert and Gorgonzola Dulce and Seafood Newburg.

Format/ABV: 750 ml/13.1
