The wine shows typical cool climate Syrah spice, with gentle game notes. It is layered with fragrant sweet, ripe cherry and blackberry notes, with underlying almond and white pepper tones. The palate is seamless, sleek and polished, with firm tannins.

There are no fewer than six varieties in this well-crafted red from the high flying Iona winery in Elgin. Syrah dominates to the tune of 80%, with support from Cabernet, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Mourvedre and Viognier. The wine has real density, with smoky, bramble and blackberry fruit, toasty oak and the freshness you'd expect from a cooler area. A bright debut.

Tim's Tasting Notes
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.
