Newton Johnson first started producing its Felicité, a blend of Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier, in 1998. At the time most of the Rosés on the market fell into the semi-sweet category, prompting the estate to create a more sophisticated, dry version that was still delicious and fresh. They continue this tradition to this day. Specific vineyards are set aside for the production of Rosé and are harvested earlier. At a lower ripeness level, the Shiraz grapes add subtle berry flavours, while the Sauvignon Blanc portion boosts the wine’s acidity.
