IONA SOLACE SYRAH 2014
For owners Andrew and Rozy, Iona is a project of sheer passion. Iona's site includes the coolest vineyards in the Cape. In terms of style and climate it is 420m above sea-level rising high above the picturesque Elgin Valley. An extremely long growing season, harvesting up to 2 months after Stellenbosch, results in diverse, complex flavours and uniquely fresh and elegant wines. The philosophy at Iona is to make wine that expresses the soils and climate as closely as possible, making use of sustainable farming methods and to maximise the use of natural products in farming and winemaking, with the Solace Syrah being made completely naturally.
This creates a wine that has red berry fruit, full of spice, white pepper and floral notes. Supple, intense palate with fine tannin matched by plenty of fruit.
Try this wine with braised lamb and blue cheece pecorino with rosemary and sundried tomato gremolada.
