Iona Pinot Noir


Category: Tags: ,

Iona Pinot Noir Surrounded by the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, the isolated Iona wine estate sports majestic views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and a cool climate somewhere between Burgundy and Sancerre. Average temperatures are a brisk 16-17 degrees, but strong coastal breezes and a long growing season allow the Iona wine farm to extend hang times and push ripeness without sacrificing acidity. Utilising sustainable farming practises, the estate turns out an impeccably balanced set of wines led by their chiselled and mineral-driven Sauvignon Blanc. Mr P from Iona Vineyards is a wonderfully accessible Pinot Noir that displays all the hallmark characteristics of a well-loved classic, at an affordable price. Boasting a lively nose of fresh berry and ripe cherry aromas against a forest floor backdrop, the bouquet is a delicious invitation to savour the flavours that follow on the palate. Pronounced sweet cherry flavours dominate the palate and are beautifully complemented by spicy undertones that lend the wine an added layer of depth. Fresh, fruit-driven and delightfully balanced, Mr P. is a food-loving Pinot that pairs beautifully with a plethora of dishes
