Iona is the coolest vineyard in the Cape, 420m above sea-level, high above the picturesque Elgin Valley. An extremely long growing season, harvesting up to 2 months after Stellenbosch, results in diverse, complex flavours and uniquely fresh and elegant wines. Long renowned for their Sauvignon blanc, their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; recently awarded 5 stars in Platter, are also very fine. Concentrated marzipan and citrus notes, with underlying oatmeal and lemon notes. Taut acidity brushed with buttery oak. Seamless. Just like a £35 fine white Burgundy – it really is that fine and seamless.
