Iona - Sauvignon Blanc
96% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Semillon
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.
Our Sauvignon Blanc vineyards represent around 60% of the total plantings on Iona. The complexity of the wine is a tribute to the array of vineyard blocks from which the wine is produced. Some of the vineyards are trellised in an east-west direction, helping to produce the underlying herbal tones on the wine, while vineyards trellised north-south help us to provide ripeness and complexity.
We have been planting Sauvignon Blanc regularly from 1998 when the first vineyards were established, and currently there are 22 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc planted.
