Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Aromatically, An interaction of pear, apricots and peaches, balanced with minerals and white flowers. Apple, pear, and apricots on the palate, with touches of oak and just the hint of butter at the finish.

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

A perfect everyday luxury, Newton Chardonnay is all about lively character and purity of fruit. A fresh expression of the varietal, delicate aromas of white flowers, crisp apple, and toasted bread translate to rich fruit flavor on the palate. A burst of freshness unfolds with flavors of citrus, pear, and apricot. A subtle presence of oak evolves into crisp acidity on the finish.
