Iona, Sophie Te'Blanche Sauvignon Blanc 2023

Get to know: Iona, Sophie Te'Blanche Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes

Floral notes with a complex medley of tropical fruits, mingled with subtle lime and gooseberry undertones. The palate is balanced and rich, showing cut green apples with great minerality and texture. Sophie te'Blanche is a nickname given by those including Iona's workers, who can't pronounce Sauvignon Blanc. It is the inspiration behind this much loved wine, produced from grapes grown by dedicated farmers in Elgin and the Cape South Coast.

Try it with fried fish goujons.

Kate Says

"One of our favourite South African wineries from Elgin, the home of Appletiser! We're really championing Sauvignon Blanc from here and this is lean and fresh, with apple, pear, grapefruit and gooseberry. A real winner."

Producer Info

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.

This wine is suitable for consumption by Vegetarians and Vegans.

This wine has been produced using a sustainable process.

This wine is produced following organic practices but is not certified organic.
