Newton Chardonnay Napa Valley Unfiltered 2006
Also got this '06 on a close out bin and was taking a chance that it wasn't cooked. Opened the bottle and it was fantastic. Still had plenty of freshness, citrus, creamy finish and a long finish. Pleasantly suprised.
When first opened, this excellent Chardonnay came across as tight and mineral-driven, like a wine that's just beginning to mature and has a long life ahead. But with airing it opened magnificently to display ripe white fruit flavors (especially sweet pears), subtle oak spice, seamless rich texture, and long finish. Nothing overdone or overblown in this Chardonnay, which had a very classy feel from start to finish. Pricey but delicious, worth springing for on special occasions, and capable of being great for years to come.
External Reviews for Newton Chardonnay Napa Valley Unfiltered
A huge, floral, and white peach nose with some oily citrus and tropical fruit (primarily only pineapple)-powerful, broad, beautifully layered, harmonious, and pure.
Wine Tasting NotesA 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.
From the renowned Newton Winery in Napa Valley, this white has round flavors of honey and brown butter, with tart apple notes to awaken the palate.
