Pinot Noir from one of our favourite South African producers Iona. Fresh cherries, ripe strawberries and a touch of spice. The palate is pure with lovely texture. A great example of fruit forward, easy-drinking Pinot Noir with real vibrancy.
Try this with a portabello mushroom and lentil burger.
"We're big fans of Andrew Gunn's Iona winery. This Mr P is, in his words, a 'Pinot Noir for the People.' It has all the character of a classic, high quality red, managing to balance the ripeness of South African wine with the elegance of a French wine."
At 420m above sea-level, set high above the picturesque Elgin Valley Andrew Gunn founded Iona. It is here overlooking the Atlantic ocean that he has secured some of the coolest vineyards in the Cape.In a country where cool climate vineyards are like gold dust, these vineyards are veritable nuggets. There is an extremely long growing season, allowing Andrew to create wines with complex flavours and a fresh, elegant style. The approach is hands off and the land is farmed according to organic and biodynamic practices with a particular focus on ensuring the health of the soils whilst pests are kept under control by the resident flock of geese that roam the vineyards.
