Newton Johnson
Wineandsea Pinot Noir, 2012
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Based in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley near the seaside town of Hermanus, it is a family affair at Newton Johnson. Started by Cape Wine Master, Dave and his wife, Felicity, sons’ Bevan and Gordon took over the reigns in the mid-2000s, joined today my Gordon’s wife Nadia. Today Newton Johnson is world-famous for their fine Chardonnays and Pinot Noir. Along with multiple accolades, the Pinot Noir has one of the longest consecutive Platter 5 Stars in history. The Windandsea  was planted on clay and decomposed granite and was the 2014 Platter’s Red Wine of the Year.

 View a Condition Report

Our prestigious Red Wine of the Year, rich, fragrant, warmly sensous 12 has particularly impressive structure (notably a succulent, mineral acidity) supporting the spicy red & black berry fruit. Lively, long-lingering; very satisfying.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2014,  5*

The 2012 Windansea Pinot Noir comes from the 2.5-hectare block directly in front of the winery on denser clay and decomposed granite that tends to impart more structure. It has a fragrant bouquet with scents of redcurrant, red cherry, a touch of balsamic and dried herbs, all well defined and complex. The palate is medium-bodied with quite juicy, succulent tannins, a fine line of acidity with a Chinese five spice note entering stage left toward the finish. This is an accomplished, delicious Pinot Noir to drink over the next 5-6 years.’ Neal Martin 91/100, Wine Advocate (2014)
