2013 Iona, Chardonnay, Elgin, South Africa (£15.00, Marks & Spencer). This is a tour de force from one of the most inventive and impressive wineries in the Cape. With eleven months spent in large oak casks the nuttiness and decadence in this sublime Chardonnay make it the perfect partner for the Turkey crown with sourdough crumbs and orange zest.
LIFE ON IONA
Iona Sauvignon Blanc, Elgin, South Africa 2013. South African sauvignon blanc just gets better and better, and Andrew Gunn's pin-sharp Iona exemplifies the country's stylistic stance between bold Kiwi and refined Loire in his cool-climate vineyards in Elgin, with the elderflower and grassiness presented with real verve and nerve.
