About this Item

Family Vineyards Chardonnay, 2017
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Based in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, 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 reins in the mid-2000s, joined today by 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.

Critics Ratings

‘From 3 granite vineyards, different aspects, giving 2017 its layers. Wild ferment (as all), barrelled 11 months adds oatmeal biscuit shading to brightly fresh citrus/stonefruit. Lots going on, held together by resonating acidity, for edge, vitality, great length.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2019, 4.5* (94/100)

‘Three sites on the farm - two facing north, the other south - supply the fruit for this consistently impressive Chardonnay. Full malolactic gives the wine good weight and texture, complemented by toasty oak, baking spice flavours and pithy freshness. 2019-25.’ - Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 94/100
