Newton Johnson wines are based in based in the upper Hemel en Aarde
Valley near the seaside town of Hermanus, an hour and a half’s drive out
of Cape Town. They truly make some fabulous wines and the Chardonnay
& Pinot Noir really are the stars of their portfolio.
Their Pinot Noir came runner up in 'Best Pinot Noirs outside of Burgundy in a Decanter tasting' in 2016, it shows the pedigree of the wine. Pure red fruit aromas, soft spices. Classic cherry and red fruits dominate, lightness of touch, soft tannins with a slight gamey edge. Perfumed & silky smooth with warm spice.
A truly beautiful Pinot that is rich and luxurious. A wine that gives immense pleasure now but with years to develop.
SC RATING - Exceptional (Adam)
