Based in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, the majestic Newton Johnson Vineyards was established by Dave and Felicity Newton Johnson in the 1990s. Today, it is run by their sons Bevan and Gordon and daughter-in-law and winemaker Nadia. Their attention to detail and obsession with quality in both the vineyards and cellar has elevated the property to well-deserved recognition as one of the valley's greatest purveyors.
‘A superb pure-fruited (but far from ‘fruity’) vintage. Delicate, complex perfume leads to subtle, indirect expression of lingering fruit. Supple & fine; the tannin structure almost unnoticeable – but it is deeply informing.’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2012, 5 stars
