Newton Johnson Walker Bay Pinot Noir 2019

HANSCORE: 19.5/25 

Like that time Liz Olsen played Scarlet Witch; the portrayal has some complexity, but is still quite primary (IE more about the fruit than anything else). Will gain more mystery, given a little time to develop.
The Newton Johnson team are a class act, and their flag ship Hemel-en-Aarde Pinot Noir is often amongst my favourite from the region. This mid-tier Pinot is a great intro to what they can do, with a slightly more gentle barrier to entry (price point).

👃🏼  Vanguard carries dried goji Berry, cherry fruit, mushroom, orange rind, dried leaves, hints of lavender.

👄  Palate presents bright juicy cherry acidity, cranberry, salted red licorice, mushroom, white pepper on the tail. Fine but firm tannins on the finish.

🔬 Upper hemel-en-Aarde Valley, 100% Pinot Noir.

💸💸 ZAR250.00 (as of December 2020)
