'The length of the 2020 growing season helped to produce Pinots with excellent balance and precision. This four vineyard blend - from Mrs M, Sandford, Seadragon and Windansea - is elegant, detailed and refined, with pale colour, wild strawberry, black tea and ginger flavours, electrifying minerality and savoury grip. Drink 2022-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 96/100

'Represents all soils of home-farm sites, imbued with perfume & structure. Layered & tightly packed, 2020 animated acid in harmony with cherry & cranberry flavours, tannins & oak, 26% new. Less savoury, more fruit-forward than 2019 (5 stars, 95 pts), same sense of quiet strength waiting. Like pinot siblings, mostly wholeberry ferment, portion wholebunch; tighter-grained oak.' – 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.
