Looking forward to reading about the majestic reds and the sparkling wine as well.

We love the Iona Sauvignon Blanc, and it’s name is the same as the university I attended!

Thanks for your post! Really enjoyed it! My own favorite is an old-style oaky South African chardonnay (I seem to remember that the old Glen Carlos wines were excellent! I’ve had them during the Reveillon in New Orleans.). Reminds me a lot of the (old) French white Graves appellation although a bit less dry. Both are excellent with turkey at Thanksgiving or Christmas. I’ll have to try the Iona wine.

Hi Jemma, your story on the Iona Sauvignon is very interesting and I loved the fotos of the Estate house and vineyard. The wine has International Recognition, so it is definitely a good wine.

Thank you Jemma for highlighting my favorite wine varietal, especially the Iona. I thank Kim Drake for introducing me to this label during my visit in April. I’ve contacted the link you included to hopefully find a distributor in Northern California.

As an aside, I also love the pairing of moules mariniere with Sauvignon Blanc – cheers!

Sounds yummy. I will have a look whether I can get this delicious wine here at home.

A nice blog Jemma. An interesting story about the wine and also to read that the growers have the same philosophy as Londolozi. We need more of that in the world. Thanks for sharing.
