Iona One Man Band Red 2016 shows cassis fruit, with exotic spice and red fruit notes. It is layered with fragrant ripe cherry and blackberry notes, with underlying spice cedarwood and white pepper characters. The palate is seamless, with elegant fine grained tannins

WINEMAKING
Our red wine vinification is very traditional. Hand harvested, before being destemmed and sorted on a vibrating table, the grapes were destemmed and not crushed. Once wild fermentation had started the skin cap was softly punched down 2-3 times per a day to achieve desired extraction. Post fermentation the wines underwent extended maceration; the wines were tasted regularly in order to assess the extraction level and when to press-off. Once pressed off, the wines undergo spontaneous malolactic fermentation in barrel where they were aged for 12-16 months, in 500L French oak barrels, of which 25% is new oak.

SYRAH (27%) is dense and powerful, but with bags of ripe red berry fruit and spice. It provides the warmth in the blend that is a perfect counterpoint to the coolness of the Iona contributions.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON (40%) The typical flavour profile is classically Cabernet with deep, dark cassis and cigar box aromas.

PETIT VERDOT (11%) It is very tannic and dark, but brings great colour, structure and aromatics to the blend.

PINOT NOIR (9%) Contributes red fruit, floral perfume and soft, elegant tannins to the blend.

MOURVÈDRE (7%) Lends weight, spice and wild berries to the blend.

VIOGNIER (6%) is a very aromatic varietal and brings perfume to the blend. Jasmine, almonds and peaches are classic Viognier aromas.
