Iona ‘Solace’ Syrah, Elgin – Biodynamic

Vintage 2016/17

"Iona is showing increasing confidence with its Syrah, and rightly so based on the quality of this third release. Made with the SH9c and SH99 clones, without any whole bunch fermentation, it’s a very pure, spicy, rose petal-scented red showing considerable freshness and elegance."

Tim Atkin, South African Report 2018
