Iona Sauvignon Blanc 2016

by Christian Eedes     16 JANUARY 2017


#WinemagRating: 90/100

Including 4% Semillon, this wine from Elgin producer Iona is extraordinarily expressive right now with notes of granadilla and pineapple to the fore on the nose but also lime and a little jasmine. The palate is fairly bursting with fruit offset by racy acidity, the finish long and dry. Just about critic proof.

Wine Cellar price: R145 a bottle.
