Intensely fragrant grapefruit, tropical fruit and gooseberry with a floral undertone. Delicious, balanced Sauvignon from the Elgin Highlands. 

Iona Sauvignon Blanc is a lovely, balanced white showing notes of fresh green apples, lime marmalade and intense tropical fruits. It has all the distinctive characteristics of great Sauvignon like grapefruit and gooseberry, as well as a distinctive herbal and floral undertone which sets wines from this region apart from others.

At 420m above sea-level, set high above the picturesque Elgin Valley Andrew Gunn founded Iona. It is here overlooking the Atlantic ocean that he has secured some of the coolest vineyards in the Cape.

In a country where cool climate vineyards are like gold dust, these vineyards are veritable nuggets. There is an extremely long growing season, allowing Andrew to create wines with complex flavours and a fresh, elegant style. The approach is hands off and the land is farmed according to organic and biodynamic practices with a particular focus on ensuring the health of the soils whilst pests are kept under control by the resident flock of geese that roam the vineyards.
