The vineyards are on a mountain plateau 420 metres above sea level, surrounded by the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

The wines of Iona come from a dramatically unique site in the Cape Winelands. The vineyards are on a mountain plateau 420 metres above sea level, surrounded by the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. In a country where cool sites are precious, these vineyards are like gold – the grapes ripening up to two months later than other Cape vineyards and in perfect balance. Iona is South Africa's coolest vineyard site. Since the first release in 2001, the wines of Iona have quickly made a name as being among the finest in the world.

Bright pale yellow. Pure and complex on the nose but more restrained than the 2012, offering hints of lemon, grapefruit, tropical fruits and dusty herbs. Offers enticing sweetness if not quite the grip of the 2012. Nicely open-knit sauvignon with an attractive lemon candy flavor, very good intensity and firm finishing minerality. Perfect now or over the next year or two.

The 2011 Sauvignon Blanc is blended with 5% Semillon and fermented in stainless steel. It has a very fine bouquet with Granny Smith apples and fresh pear. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, a lively citric thread and a mineral-rich finish that is understated and long in the mouth. This is a classy Sauvignon. Drink now–2016.
