‘Grapes from three blocks, two north-facing and one south-facing. Matured for 11 months in 228- and 500-litre barrels, 25% new. Aromatics are still very primary with notes of citrus, oatmeal, a hint of vanilla and some flinty reduction. The palate is intense but not overly weighty – extra-concentrated fruit and scintillating acidity before a savoury finish. Pure, energetic and beautifully poised, this is years off drinking at its best. Alc: 13%.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 96/100

‘Blending three different components from both sides of the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, this is a beautifully judged Chardonnay from a South African master of the variety. Voluptuous and textured, yet focused and energetic at the same time, it has struck match top notes, 22% new oak, citrus and vanilla spice flavours and a pithy, salty finish. 2024-30’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 95/100

‘A little popcorn toasty but in a good way – fresh, buttery, salty popcorn. Golden apples and lots of vibrant energy with mouth-watering tang of lime pickle, salt and tamarind. Great length. 2023-2028’ - Tamlyn Currin, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20

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.
