    An opulent vintage with fascinating floral perfumes. Matured for 8 months in stainless steel (55%), a large concrete egg vessel (20%) and old, bigger volume barrels (25%) with no fining nor light filtration before bottling. A dense base of white peach and quince fruit juxtaposed with a beeswax/lees character. Airy scents of apple blossom and honeydew exhilarate the senses with an austere edge of apple skin. The waxy texture envelops the palate, succulent in the middle, and the flavour protracted by delicate acidity and the grip of mealy grape tannin. A very tasty Albariño!

    Led by Dave, a Cape Wine Master with a thesis on Pinot Noir, and his wife, Felicity (nee Newton), the Newton Johnson family moved to the Upper Hemel en Aarde Valley in 1995, built a cellar and started planting vines shortly thereafter. This enthusiasm for wine and Pinot noir in particular, was passed on to and eagerly adopted by his sons, Bevan and Gordon. They in turn have taken this family cellar and vineyards to new heights in exploring the nuances of this grape and their vineyards.
