Elgin, South Africa
Iona is the coolest vineyard in the cape, high in the Elgin valley which means grapes take longer to ripen resulting in more elegant and restrained wines.
A Rhone Style Blend with Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Mourvedre. Elegant with ripe, juicy red and black fruit. The One Man Band certainly plays to his own tune. Lovely white pepper and sweet, exotic spice on the nose. The entry is intense, with underlying cedar wood, followed by a long savoury, earthy finish with fine grained tannins.
