Wine Maker's Notes
Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay is fermented with wild yeast, native to Newton's Carneros vineyards, and is bottled unfiltered to preserve the natural fruit essence and to foster the wine's unique aroma and flavor.
A classic expression of unfiltered Chardonnay, this rich and powerful wine opens with aromas of citrus flowers, coconut, butterscotch and roasted almonds. On the palate the wine combines butter and oak with layers of peach, mango and honey and a touch of mineral on the finish.
To fully enjoy the rich intensity of this wine, serve it with simply prepared succulent dishes such as broiled monkfish, braised pork with apples, or salmon with tarragon aioli.
"Consistently one of California's finest, longest-lived Chardonnays..."
