Newton Johnson Resonance Sauvignon-Semillon 2012

Product code: 13NEW9B2012

Pure, flinty flavours and lime citrus emanate from our single quartz vineyard of organically grown Sauvignon Blanc. Naturally fermented Semillon in new oak barrels comprises 20% of the blend and provides complex flavours of spice and nougat to balance the mineral characters and further aging potential. Our intention is to produce a wine that is very pure, finely textured, not overtly oaky, and has the drinkability that Sauvignon delivers.
