"Very fine and fresh and sleek. Dry and super appetising. A very fair price. Much more interesting than most Marlborough examples." - JANCIS ROBINSON

"This very lightly wooded estate Sauvignon Blanc deserves its many plaudits, consistently delivering plenty of flavour at a fair price. Combined with 3% Semillon, it has flavours of passion fruit and white pepper, good texture and a racy, crunchy finish." - TIM ATKINS

Description of Iona Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Iona Sauvignon Blanc 2020 (Sauvignon Blanc)

TASTING NOTES:
Beautiful purity of limes and ripe gooseberry, with tropical, floral and fine herbal notes, ruby grapefruit and white pear drop on the finish. This is cool climate Sauvignon Blanc - vibrant, mineral, elegant, balanced and delicate, with a long, layered and complex finish.

APPELLATION: Elgin

VINEYARD: Iona

GRAPES: Sauvignon Blanc

WINEMAKING: Grapes were hand-picked into crates early in the morning to ensure that the grapes stayed cool. Each of the 9 blocks are harvested and vinified separately. 10% skin contact for between 8-12 hours. After gentle pressing, the must was settled, maintaining a temperature of 6-8°C. Fermentation occurred at 14-16°C, using different commercial yeast strains particularly suited to Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was kept on the gross lees for 5 months and stirred regularly to enhance the richness of the mid-palate. The 4% Sémillon component was fermented naturally in 2nd and 3rd fill 500L French oak barrels to enhance the mid-palate weight and to add complexity to the wine. A selection of different Sauvignon Blanc vineyard sites were naturally fermented in 500L French oak barrels. The barrel fermentation component made up 4% of the final blend.

ABV: 13%

Comprei porque me foi indicado por uma amiga.
A olho tem uma cor intensa. Assim que o cheirei senti o aroma a flores brancas. Notava-se a acidez do Iona, muito boa.
