4 /5

- Fragrance of pure white grapefruit, intense tropical fruit, ripe gooseberry and fleshy kiwi fruit over-lay Iona's distinctive herbal and floral undertone. The palate is keenly balanced showing cut green apples and lime marmalade followed by great minerality and length.
- Great with fresh asparagus, chicken and seafood dishes but is also enjoyable by itself.

4/5

I gave it to my parents and we tried it together.
Has a deep golden yellow colour. Very aromatic, with a predominance of bananas and lychees. I liked it because it was as light as water.
Perfect for rice with vegetables.

4/5

I drank it together with my sister.
Nice and pretty colour. On the nose, white fruits noticeable. I noticed a kind of salty aftertaste in the finish.
I would recommend to pair it with gouda cheese.
