2017 Sauvignon Blanc Iona Elgin South Africa

S109501171SA6

Iona Sauvignon Blanc has an aromatic nose with fine mineral notes with gooseberry and grapefruit aromas. The palate is so well balanced and elegant, with classic Sauvignon Blanc flavours of grapefruit and light gooseberry fruit and a long, flinty finish.
Andrew and Rosy Gunn's vineyards are located in the Highlands of Elgin on a mountain plateau at 420 metres surrounded by the Kogelburg Nature Reserve, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, where grapes ripen slowly, often some 2 months later than other Cape vineyards.
Akin to the Pouilly Fume style of Sauvignon; this is an accomplished wine, the 2016 vintage has been given 92 points by Tim Atkin MW in his South Africa Report 2017. It has been so popular that we have now moved on to the 2017 vintage!
