Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir



One of our first stops on our South African tour of 2017 and they don’t come much better than Newton Johnson. Located in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde region near Walker Bay. A wonderful tasting in the beautiful Newton Johnson cellar door with assistant winemaker Dean.

Outstanding: runner-up in best Pinot Noirs outside of Burgundy in Decanter April 2016 issue. “Sweet cranberry nose, quite intense; smoky bacon and toasted oak. Real drive and persistence on the palate. Fine backbone of acidity, giving some tension and bite. Silky, dynamic, nuanced, long.”
