Newton Johnson Walker bay Pinot Noir
"Our Walker Bay Pinot Noir is the shadow of our best vineyards, bearing perhaps not the same
gravitas, but a level of quality and personality from Pinot Noir that is typically the Upper
Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. It is an Estate wine made from younger vines and vineyards on the
Over a decade of farming these vineyards have guided us in terms of their individual strengths
and limitations. The younger vines are from vineyards that could in time provide the best
quality of all, however at this stage they are more preoccupied with a flirtatious, fruit assertive
character with more complexity to come. The vineyards on the lower slopes grow with a little
more vigour as their accessibility to water and nutrients in the soil becomes easier. Depth of
flavour accumulates as you move up the slope with the decomposed Granite based soils playing
the common thread between all the vineyards."

Youthful perfume with intricate spice and tertiary notes. Fresh violet petals, dark cherry and
grape stem spice play with the darker, more brooding and earthy characters of wood bark and
truffles. The silky tannin structure encompasses the ripe cherry succulence, with cranberries,
cinnamon and gentle acidity drifting in to the finish.
The main vineyard contingent to this wine lies mostly on the south -facing, mid slopes, but
includes lower parcels from the northern slope, in the porphyritic Granite soils of the Upper
Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. This appellation ranges from 4 to 8 km in proximity to the Atlantic
Ocean. The climate is cool and temperate, where parallel mountain ranges channel the southerly
oceangoing winds through the appellation during the summer. These southerly winds in turn
create regular sea mists and overcast conditions, moderating the temperatures in the valley. The
annual rainfall is 850mm, with 50% falling in the winter months (May – August).
