Intro to Iona Mr P Pinot Noir –

Iona Mr P Pinot Noir from Elgin is full of cherries and berries on nose and palate and this wine is fresh and intense with real vibrancy.

Full tasting note and wine making –

Iona Mr P is made from Pinot Noir and is full of elegant, fresh cherry and red berry aromas. The palate is pure with lovely texture and sweet cherry fruit dominates with spicy undertones and it is fresh and intense with real vibrancy.

The grapes are hand harvested, de-stemmed but not crushed and 10% are whole bunch fermented for complexity. The must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at 28’C with regular punch downs during fermentation. Once pressed, the wine is racked in to 2nd , 3rd and 4th fill French barrels where it is left to mature for 11 months.

The Pinot grapes for this wine come from Langrug, one of Iona’s small farms in the Elgin Valley, with a unique terroir. Here diverse soils, fanned by cooling ocean breezes ensure perfect conditions for slow ripening, allowing the grapes to develop their intense flavours, complexity and finesse. Mr P, is a “Pinot for the people”, showing all the characteristics of classic, high quality Pinot Noir at an affordable price, making use of younger vines and older barrels with careful and dedicated wine making.

The producer –

Iona’s vineyards are located in The Highlands, a unique sub-region of Elgin on the saddle between two peaks, which is virtually exclusive to Iona. The uniquely elegant and mineral driven Sauvignon Blanc grown here in The Highlands is a true benchmark for South Africa and has won Iona many loyal followers from around the world.

Iona is thought to be the coolest vineyard in the Cape, 420m above sea-level, high above the Elgin Valley. An extremely long growing season, harvesting up to 2 months after Stellenbosch, results in diverse, complex flavours and fresh 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. Everything is done in-house. From the vineyard to the wine distribution, for owners Andrew and Rozy, Iona is the sole source of their focus, passion and great joy.
