External Reviews for Iona Sauvignon Blanc Elgin
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.
