Newton Johnson, Walker Bay Pinot Noir 750ml 2017South Africa, Walker Bay
The current vintage has yet to be tasted, the tasting notes below are from the previous vintage:
'Bright cherry fruit, tea leaf, spice and attractive undergrowth notes all conspire to bring us a beautiful nuanced house style wine from Newton Johnson. There is great purity of fruit but it is gracefully backward. The fruit is wonderfully balanced by spice and a savoury thread. This is a light, lively Pinot Noir with delicious poise. Drink: 2018 – 2020.' – James Pietersen (March 2018)
'The ‘Walker Bay’ is the shadow of our best vineyards, bearing perhaps not the same gravitas, but a level of quality and personality from Pinot Noir that is typically the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. It is an Estate wine made from younger vines and vineyards on the lower slopes. Over a decade of farming these vineyards has guided us in terms of their individual strengths and limitations. The younger vines are from vineyards that could in time provide the best quality of all, however at this stage they are more preoccupied with a flirtatious, fruit assertive character with more complexity to come. The vineyards on the lower slopes grow with a little more vigour as their accessibility to water and nutrients in the soil becomes easier. Depth of flavour accumulates as you move up the slope with the decomposed granite based soils playing the common thread between all the vineyards. ' – Nadia Newton Johnson
