Grapes for the Newton Johnson Resonance are sourced from the only vineyard of Sauvignon Blanc on the Newton Johnson property. The vines grow in quartz and sandstone soil. Texture is of prime importance in our whites and Semillon forms the broader framework of this particular blend. The intention is to produce a wine that is pure, finely textured, and not overtly oaky.
Founded by Cape Wine Master, Dave Johnson and his wife, Felicity (née Newton), Newton Johnson Family Vineyards has been solidly building its reputation over the past 20 years. Since their first vintage in 1997 made from bought fruit, they are now producing some of the Cape’s finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from their own 15 hectares of vines.
