 Product Description

Newton sources their Chardonnay fruit primarily from the Carneros region of Napa Valley. The Carneros terrain where they grow Chardonnay is marked by well-drained, rolling hills sloping to the San Pablo Bay. The proximity of the bay moderates the vineyard microclimate with morning and evening fog and afternoon breezes. The area is marked by cool marine influences that provide a long-growing season to develop even and optimal ripeness.

The Unfiltered Chardonnay was 100 percent barrel fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine was aged for a total of 12 months in French oak barrels, 27 percent of which were new. During maturation every barrel was hand-stirred weekly to re-suspend the sediment, a technique that protects the wine from oxidation and creates added complexity. The individual lots were then blended and bottled unfiltered.

Intense, pristine and concentrated. Aromas of citrus blossom, white peach, brioche, gun smoke and marzipan create wonderful depth. Flavors continue on the palate including lime zest, jasmine and honeydew melon. Wonderfully intense, the fruit blends seamlessly with subtle smoky oak and yeasty complexity to create a textural and vibrant mouthfeel. The juicy acidity balances the profound intensity of the fruit providing great carry and length.
