Sophie Te’blanche, the most famous woman to never exist, and a nickname in South Africa for “Sauvignon Blanc”!
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. 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!
Iona, Sophie Te'Blanche Sauvignon Blanc wine has wonderful 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, a nickname given by those who can't pronounce Sauvignon Blanc, is the inspiration behind this much-loved wine, produced from grapes grown by dedicated farmers in Elgin and the Cape South Coast. Perfect with Asparagus, fish with Hollandaise sauce and Thai Food.Country: South Africa
