2021 Newton Johnson Family Chardonnay - 750ml
Newton Johnson Vineyards is owned and managed by the Newton Johnson family. Their vineyards are located in the upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley appellation which lies at an altitude of 150 to 300 metres above sea level in the sole emergence of igneous granite in the Southern Cape which is described as porphyritic, having cooled in stages to distinct sizes of crystal, and decomposed further into the soil structure. Lower down, clays formed help protect the vines from temperature change and dehydration. It is believed that the granite provides the linear and perfumed characters of Newton Johnson wines.
