Reviews of Iona Sauvignon Blanc 2018
- Great with fresh asparagus, chicken and seafood dishes but is also enjoyable by itself.
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.
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.
