The Family Vineyards Chardonnay is comprised of three vineyard sites from the farm, widely varied in their exposure to the sun. The vibrancy, clear cut structure and long flavour we perceive from these granitic slopes is our safeguarded jewel.
The south facing Chardonnay vineyards produce edgy and agile wines with nervy acidit y, while the north facing slopes are more lustrous wines, delivering weight without being heavy, layering the structure . A natural approach in the winemaking will ensure a complex array of characters in this wine.
Newton Johnson Chardonnay
Lucid ripe citrus and white peach are inured with ornate spices and lime zest. The fleshiness of the wine is counter balanced with mineral tones and gunflint. The brittle crunch in the structure hems in the lush texture, with an elongated thread of acidity resonating in the finish.
