Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2020

R400.00 inc. VAT
"We want our Chardonnays to last," says Gordy Newton Johnson, and this one certainly will. Made with grapes from three sites - two north- and one south-facing, this is a very complete, balanced wine, with 30% new wood, citrus, oatmeal and cinnamon spice flavours, pithy acidity, a drizzle of cream and commendable palate length. "- Tim Atkin MW

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2020

R485.00 inc. VAT
Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2020, "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." - Tim Atkin MW

Newton Johnson Full Stop Rock 2019

R195.01 inc. VAT
Newton Johnson Full Stop Rock 2019, "Rich and generous with its wild flavour. Brooding black fruits, liquorice and mulberry are laced with black and white pepper, topped with the sweet floral notes of Grenache. Full liquorice flavour, with juicy red fruits in the periphery, and chewy tannins lasting in to the finish." - Winemaker's notes

Newton Johnson Walker Bay Pinot Noir 2020

R240.01 inc. VAT
"This is "only" the Walker Bay Pinot Noir from the Newton Johnsons, but it's pretty special at the price. Made from Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and Bot River fruit, it's wonderfully floral and sappy with some granitic tannins, subtle whole bunch notes and red cherry and pomegranate fruit. Wonderfully drinkable." - Tim Atkin MW

Newton Johnson Southend Chardonnay 2020

R225.00 inc. VAT
“Condensed flavours elevated by this vineyard’s rapier – like freshness. Ripe limes & waxy honeycomb are illuminated by sharp ginger and lemon zest, with an airy scent of jasmine. Succulent citrus fruit in the mouth, ladled with lees texture and buttery brioche, narrowing to a racy, lively finish.” – Winemaker's notes

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2017

R365.01 inc. VAT
Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Chardonnay 2017, "Abundant layers of complex flavour growing increasingly luminescent and steely in the glass. Lucid ripe citrus and white peach are inured with ornate spices and lime zest . The fleshiness of the wine sways and eases the razor sharp purity of the Granite soil influence. The brittle crunch in the structure hems in the lush texture, with an elongated thread of grape acid resonating in the finish." Winemaker's notes

Newton Johnson Felicité Pinot Noir 2020

R115.00 inc. VAT
"The Newton Johnson family are specialists in the growing and making of the Burgundian grape varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Felicité range offers access to fine examples of these wines at prices that won’t break the bank. Discovering Pinot Noir wines can be a supremely rewarding experience, some say the ultimate. The fragrant fruit of Pinot Noir is ever distinct; and the silky, elegant texture is what seduces you in to what may be called the ‘Queen of wines’." Producer's note

Newton Johnson Albariño 2020

R195.01 inc. VAT
An opulent concentration of crisp and complex fruit and redolent white flowers. The pungent base of ripe limes, tangy nectarine and quince fruit is softened with a mealy beeswax character. Drifting scents of apple blossom and honeydew deliver some alluring top notes. The waxy texture envelops the palate, succulent fruit in the middle, and the flavour protracted by refreshing acidity in the finish.

Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2019

R435.00 inc. VAT
“[Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2019] is a seamless assemblage of four parcels - Sandford, Mrs M, Windansea and Seadragon...Wonderfully sweet and refreshing, it's an acidity-led cuvée in 2019, with remarkable vibrancy and focus, fine-grained tannins and top notes of rose petal and fresh lily. The 20% whole bunches add some tobacco and fresh earth notes.” – 96 points, Tim Atkin MW (South Africa 2020 Special Report)
