Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Sandford Chardonnay 2018

Sandford offers a sense of energy and vitality when intertwined with the richness of Chardonnay. Coarse, loose grains of granite and quartz reach down to red, iron-rich clay in the soil that underlines the wine’s structure and grip. Made without sulphur in the winemaking, the whole bunches were pressed directly to barrel for fermentation to nish the following spring. Matured for 11 months, the wine is racked through coarse filtration to older barrels for 6 months élevage before bottling.

Tasting Notes: Beaming yellow fruit and mineral crushed stones drive the vigour in the nose, fleshed out with richer stone fruit and roasted chestnuts. Luxuriant front palate merges in to a linear and grippy finish.

Winemaker: Gordon Newton Johnson
