Iona Sauvignon Blanc 2012
By Melanie, 21 August 2012
The Sauvignon Blanc from Iona in Elgin usually takes at least 12 months from vintage to open up but the 2012 (R107.50) bottled a week ago is already looking great. Expressive without being at all exaggerated, it shows aromas of citrus, fynbos and jasmine.Take a sip and there’s a burst of fruit on entry before a bone-dry finish. Elegance is not a word to be bandied about but this wine most definitely is. Score: 17/20.
