First released in the spring of 2016, Johnson Estate’s May Wine is a slightly sweet and bubbly wine made from Vidal Blanc grapes and delicately flavored with an infusion of sweet woodruff. Winemaker, Jeff Murphy, was inspired by the annual celebration of May Day in Germany – where the festivities include "Maiwein" and punches, including one that often features white wine, strawberries, and the shade-loving dried herb, sweet woodruff.
In this case, winemaker Jeff Murphy used these ideas to create Johnson Estate’s own May Wine, using estate-grown Vidal Blanc grapes and dried sweet woodruff.
