'We want our Chardonnays to last,' says Gordy Newton Johnson, and this one certainly will. Made with grapes from three sites - two north- and one south-facing, this is a very complete, balanced wine, with 30% new wood, citrus, oatmeal and cinnamon spice flavours, pithy acidity, a drizzle of cream and commendable palate length. Drink 2022-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 95/100

'Different aspects of 3 granite vineyards add layers: south-facing slopes lend racy acidity, northerly ones weight & texture. Lemon, white peach & mandarin, roasted nut & oatmeal, multidimensional 2020 has thrilling, persistent dryness. Bunch pressed & wild fermented in barrel (various formats). Also in 1.5L. Outstanding 2019 (5 stars, 98 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

Producer information Pinot Noir is infamously picky, but the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley has become one of the finest Pinot producing regions in the New World. While the Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir is consistently one of SA's finest examples. Newton Johnson is a family vineyard led by Dave and Felicity, located in the upper Hemel en Aarde Valley. Their sons, Bevan and Gordon, have taken over their passion for wine, particularly Pinot Noir, and help the vineyards reach new heights.
