Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2011

Product code: 13NEW12B2011

Beautifully soft with a chocolatey nose and plenty of spice combined with a little gamy edge and some bright fleshy fruit. Deliciously harmonious with soft red fruit and spice palate, good tannins and juicy cherry acidity that lengthens and freshens the finish. Delicate and very beautiful.

Production information

The Newton Johnson family has been at the heart of Cape winemaking for many years, but only recently took the plunge and set up its own estate. The winery is based near the seaside town of Hermanus, an hour and a half’s drive out of Cape Town. Read more

Production note

All the fruit is harvested by hand and cooled down overnight to 8°C in the cold room. The bunches are hand sorted, destemmed and crushed. All transfers of grape must are attained with the use of gravity which preserves the integrity of the wine. Cold maceration ensues for 3 to 6 days. The primary and malolactic fermentation is 100% natural, i.e. no cultured yeast or inoculant is added. Only pigeage (punching down) is applied for extraction. After pressing the wine is racked and left to complete
