2022 Newton Johnson Walker Bay Pinot Noir - 750ml
Our Walker Bay Pinot Noir is the shadow of our best vineyards, bearing perhaps not the same gravitas, but a level of quality and personality that distinguishes the Hemel-en-Aarde and its surrounds. It is a wine made from younger vines, vineyards on the lower slopes, and other engaging sites in the vicinity. Farming these vineyards has guided us in terms of their individual strengths and limitations. The younger vines are from vineyards that could in time provide the best quality of all, however at this stage they are more preoccupied with a flirtatious, fruit assertive character with more complexity to come. The vineyards on the lower slopes grow with a little more vigour as their accessibility to water and nutrients in the soil becomes easier. Depth of flavour accumulates as you move up the slope with the decomposed Granite based soils playing the common thread between all the vineyards.
Perfumed layers of red fruits; the warm, rich spice and woody notes mingle with earthy
mushroom and dried flower characters. The generous and polished palate is gripped with fine,
chalky tannins. Ripe raspberry fruit provides some flesh to the mid palate , with long savoury
liquorice flavour in the finish.
