Each Newton Vineyard wine embodies the founders’ vision to rise above the conventions of the valley in pursuit of unmatched quality. Crafted with an uncompromising commitment to true terroir expression, the Newton style is noted for its unadulterated richness and purity of fruit. The single square mile of hillside pioneered by the Newtons in 1977 is an impressive site, with expansive vistas of Napa Valley and beyond. The terraced mountain estate has 120 acres planted at elevations ranging from 500 to 1,600 feet above sea level. Each of the 112 distinctive vineyard blocks is planted to a specific varietal – Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon or Petit Verdot. These parcels reflect distinct soil types, sun exposures and individual microclimates. The blocks are fermented separately to contribute complexity to the final blended wine. As with the red varietals, the diverse Chardonnay blocks are hand-picked and vinified separately, providing the winemaker with a rich palette from which to choose when blending Newton Vineyard wines. The blocks are set among the native vegetation to preserve the ecosystem of the hillside. Recognized as an American pioneer of unfiltered wines, Newton Vineyard is dedicated to working in harmony with nature to transform grapes of uncompromised quality into wines of distinctive character. Based on an old-world style, Newton’s winemaking techniques include natural fermentation and bottling without filtration. These purist traditions preserve the natural depth of flavor, bouquet and structure. Read less

2009 vintage. A very good Napa chardonnay. Slight oak, good fruit, decent finish, very nice balance. This is a good value and I'd put it up with bottles twice the price.

Offers a tangy grapefruit-tangerine-citrus edge, with floral scents, turning delicate on the finish, yet retaining its snappy fruit character. Drink now through 2017. 25,500 cases made. -JL Enticing and delicate aromas of melon and baking spice are intertwined with poached pear and mocha notes. The aromas carry through to the palate where they are accented by honey and fig flavors. The velvety mouthfeel of this well-balanced Chardonnay persists throughout the lingering and full finish. - WineryComposition: 100% ChardonnayAppellation: Napa CountyHarvest Dates: Sep - Oct 2010Aging: 12 months; French oakAlcohol: 14.5% ** SOLD OUT **

Enticing and delicate aromas of white nectarine and vanilla spice are intertwined with baked apple and caramel notes. The aromas carry through to the palate where they are accented by ripe melon and fresh pineapple flavors.

Leuchtendes Gelb mit grüngoldenem Schimmer. Reife Williamsbirne, Quittensaft, Ananas, Mirabellenkompott und Doldenblüten in der fi nessenreichen burgundischen Nase, dahinter reife Stachelbeeren, getrocknete Aprikosen und Butterspekulatius. Fülliger Gaumen mit erfrischender Fruchtsäure und feiner Mineralik, wieder viel gelbe reife Frucht und verführerische Exotik, nun auch Vanille und Mandelaromen, gute Balance bis ins fruchtbetonte Finale.
