Newton Johnson Vineyards is owned and managed by the Newton Johnson family. Gordon and Nadia Newton Johnson are the husband-and-wife winemaking team with experience of over 30 vintages between them. They adore the classics and taste as much of Burgundy as they can lay their hands on.
The Family Vineyards Chardonnay is comprised of three vineyard sites from the farm, widely varied in their exposure to the sun.
Illuminating quality, powerful yet precise and energetic. Green lime, chalk and allspice give ornate lift to the richer, riper lime, yuzu citrus and headier spices. Grape tannin buttresses the vibrant citrus flavour, lengthened by the bright acidity in to a resonating, dry and granular finish.
