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.

An amazingly clean and crisp white wine. It is light and great during the day particularly in the Summer.
