    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep black cherry fruit lends this wine a distinctive plushness and complexity on the palate, supported by a firm body and good length, balanced by Iona's characteristic natural acidity.

    42% Merlot, 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Named after a Viking son, 2006 The Gunnar is a Bordeaux blend consisting of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot that undergoes 12 to 18 months in barrel with around 30% new oak. The nose displays impressive definition with lively, crisp red currant, raspberry and dark plum fruit with just a faint hint of tar and cedar wood. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, good acidity, well integrated new oak and an expressive, Bordeaux-like finish with touches of graphite and tobacco. Drink now-2015.
