Intense, focused and complex. Pink grapefruit, fresh fig and pear aromas are enhanced by elements of spice and vanilla, contributing additional depth and intrigue. Flavors of lemon curd, marzipan and white peach evolve in the mouth, enlivened by beautifully balanced natural acidity.
-Dedicated to working in harmony with nature to produce remarkable artisan wines, Newton Vineyard transforms fruit of uncompromised quality into wines of distinctive character. An early pioneer of Spring Mountain and one of the first Napa Valley wineries to craft unfiltered and naturally fermented wines, Newton Vineyard has become one of the most inspiring and fascinating wine estates in the world. “Newton’s unfiltered Chardonnay has been a consistent winner since it was first launched in the early 1980s, when the fruit was coming from what is today John Kongsgaard’s Judge cuvée. Newton is still making this wine unfiltered, and the 2014 Chardonnay Unfiltered is rich and displays beautiful white peach, honeysuckle and tropical fruit, some nice, crisp wet pebble minerality in the background and a full-bodied mouthfeel. Deep, layered and complete, this is a big-time winner.”
