Notes

Newton Johnson Vineyards is owned and managed by the Newton Johnson family. The farm is based in the upper Hemel en Aarde Valley near the seaside town of Hermanus, an hour and a half’s drive out of Cape Town.

Led by Dave, a Cape Wine Master with a thesis on Pinot Noir, and his wife, Felicity (nee Newton), the Newton Johnson family moved to the Upper Hemel en Aarde Valley in 1995, built a cellar and started planting vines shortly thereafter. This enthusiasm for wine and Pinot noir in particular, was passed on to and eagerly adopted by his sons, Bevan and Gordon. They in turn have taken this family cellar and vineyards to new heights in exploring the nuances of this grape and their vineyards.

Tasting notes:
'The nose of the 2018 from Newton Johnson displays a floral top note before peach and orange plus just a touch of leesy character. The palate has good fruit expression, as well a slight greasiness when it comes to texture – it’s rounder with less piercing acidity than the Springfield of the same vintage. The finish, meanwhile, is gently savoury. It’s perhaps not quite sure what it wants to be but intriguing, even so. ' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 90/100
