Syrah and Mourvèdre are grown exclusively on granite sites of higher density plantings with the most rugged of these at the very bottom of the Newton Johnson farm. Granite soil is known to bear fresh, precise and perfumed wines. This is the first edition of this estate red from the very worthy 2012 vintage and carries their typical approach of soft handling in the cellar and use of whole bunches and stems to add definition and length.

This is a fabulous addition to the newton Johnson range introducing a very Rhône like wine with clove, pepper and incense spices intertwined with sweet blackberry fruit and judicious oak.

Always one of my favourites, the release of this wine is hotly anticipated every year and it has always surpassed expectations. This is some of the best Pinot Noir you will find outside Burgundy.
Made up of mostly Windansea, with 25% each of Seadragon and Mrs M, this "expresses all of the soils of the farm", according to Gordon Newton Johnson, and is a superb Pinot. Leafy, complex and spicy, with evident whole bunch flavours, fine tannins and a sweet finish. 2018-28.

A journey into the combined expression of sandstone and clay soils. Sandstone provides the mineral and aromatic citrus fruit characters; while clay adds texture, depth, and riper tropical flavours in the mouth. 5% Semillon fermented in oak provides an extra creamy sensation.

Farmed organically and predominantly sourced from a single vineyard and grown in quartz and sandstone soil. With an importance placed on texture, this is a wine that is pure, finely textured Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon blend, softly oaked and with the accessibility that Sauvignon delivers. A fine example of a Bordeaux white style of wine that shows capacity for ageing.
