Newton Johnson 2018 Albarino
We are pleased to introduce the Albarino from Newton Johnson, the first commercially available version of this variety from the Cape. The vineyards are just a few miles inland from the ocean mimicking the homeland of this variety of the Atlantic coast of Spain. The wine has subtle hints of jasmine, white flowers and white peaches and a palate which is leesy and textured. This is a very grown up wine which is great effort as the Newton Johnsons barely have a handful of vintages under their belt for this wine.

Newton Johnson was founded in the mid-1990s by Cape Wine Master, Dave Johnson and his wife, Felicity (Née Newton). Over the past twenty years, the winery has built a reputation for producing some of the Cape’s finest Pinot Noir’s. This is not a massive surprise since Dave’s CWM thesis was on the variety.
Add to that one of the smartest Chardonnay’s in the country plus, more recently, a pair of outstanding Rhône style wines. The result? Well, three Patter Five Stars in the 2016 guide is a good benchmark to start with.
The first vintage was released in 1997 and all vinified from bought-in fruit. That was in a cellar located above the already established vineyards of Hamilton Russell and Bouchard Finlayson, both of whom had pioneered the Hemel-en-Aarde valley through the 1980s and 1990s, proving that this was a credible place to plant Pinot Noir and Chardonnay
