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.

This was the best New World Chardonnay I tasted last year, bar none. Ripe apple, green lime, honey with macadamia nuts. A broader style but with fabulous freshness from the bright acidity, finishes with a creamy mouthfeel and a long, satisfying finish. For me this is a nod towards very fine Burgundy.

Find me a better Chardonnay at this price, go on give it your best shot.
