Case of Newton Johnson Sauvignon Blanc
We take an artful and natural approach in making this wine, aspiring to harmonise the many features within the Sauvignon Blanc grape grown in the Hemel -en-Aarde area. Soil-type combinations from these various vineyards produce a spectrum of flavour.
Quartz and sandstone soils high on the vineyard slopes provide clear, mineral and bright flavours to the wine. Clay based soil further down produces wines that may initially seem quite indistinct on the nose, slowly producing aromatics of tropical fruits, and it is the luxurious texture in the mouth that is its greatest asset. A touch of oaked Semillon in the blend broadens this texture, combining a creamy sensation with the dryness and length of natural acidity
