The wine shows cassis fruit, with exotic spice and red fruit notes. It is layered with fragrant ripe cherry and blackberry notes, with underlying spicy cederwood and white pepper characters. The palate is seamless, with elegant fine grained tannins.

Dark, bright colour; very attractive nose of peppery dark fruit, floral notes, smoke and meat. Beautiful structure on the palate with peppery dark fruit, full and luscious, yet with plenty of freshness and tannic backbone, long lingering and complex aftertaste – very appealing material. Very Rhône like.
(93/100)
ANDREAS LARSSON
Tasted Journal #8
One Man Band is an endeavour to put the best possible red wine from Iona in a bottle using any, some or all of our Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Mourvèdre and Viognier, regardless of planted proportions, creating a blend which surpasses any of the single varietals on their own.
 
A blend gives us the leverage to produce – in any given vintage – a wine of substance, character, complexity and poise. A wine that will represent the best possible reflection of each vintage from Iona.
 
One Man Band is a balancing act using many different instruments, aiming to harmonise, co-ordinate and integrate the separate elements.
 
One Man Band is not a "fait accompli" – but rather represents continuous endeavour and striving. There is implied humility with necessary focus and dedication to task which is the cornerstone of our farming practices, and the making and selling of our wine.
