IONA PINOT NOIR
Succulent black cherry aroma, bright but delicate and hints of forest ﬂoor, with underlying ﬂoral and spicy notes. On the palate, the wine is powerful, with silk-textured length.
The grapes were berry selected on a sorting table, destemmend and gently crushed. The must fermented in stainless steel tanks at 28°C, with regular punch downs during the fermentation. After malolactic fermentation, the wine matures for 12-14 months in 300 liter French oak barrels with 15% new.
91 Points Platters Guide
Forward, generous aromas on 2015 (dark cherry, some forest floor, even a touch of dark chocolate). Similarly rich, flavourful palate with sweet, even bold fruit, given form by slight tannin & fresh acidity, supported by judicious oaking (15% new). 2014 (4 stars, 88 pts) was a touch awkward.
