Notes

'Unlike most of the Cape winelands, 2016 was a very good vintage in the Hemel-en-Aarde valley and compares favourably to the brilliant 2015s. The Family Vineyards Pinot is hauntingly deep and impressive, ever reminding one of the fragrance of red Burgundy. Quite closed and backward, with air glowing red fruits, undergrowth, truffles and perfume leads to a silky, medium-bodied palate. Tight and teasing, a long spicy tail caresses your palate with waves of elegant fruit. Best from 2019 to 2025.' – Roland Peens (July 2017)

Last year’s Newton Johnson flagship wines sold out in record time. The Burgundian-style Family Vineyards not only offer great value compared to their international counterparts, but locally, they punch well above their price point.

The elegant and ethereal Pinot Noir has arguably the finest track record of Platter’s 5-stars and last year Decanter named it as one of the top 3 Pinots in the world outside Burgundy! Representing the soils of the entire domaine, it's the result of strict selection from the most reputed vineyards.

Notes on the 2015:
In the latest edition of Decanter magazine, the Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir was selected as one of the top 3 Pinots in the world outside Burgundy. This is a wine that has received 5 stars in Platter’s for every single vintage submitted since 2009 – an extraordinary track record that is unmatched by any other producer.

The Newton Johnson Family Vineyards range is made from their very best vineyards, in limited quantities, and offers incredible value.
