Iona Elgin Highlands Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc 2020

By , 30 September 2021

It’s only rock ‘n roll but we like. The standard label Sauvignon Blanc from Elgin property Iona, not to mention the subordinate but super-successful Sophie Te’Blanche, have just about conquered all before them but what happens when winemaker Werner Muller cuts a bit loose?

Spontaneously fermented and matured for 11 months in older 500-litre barrels, the Wild Ferment 2020 has great composure. On the nose, white peach and even a little apricot plus leesy, earthy, almost mushroom-like notes while the palate is relatively rich and broad with gentle acidity. Layers of flavour, subtle and balanced.

CE’s rating: 94/100.
