Newton Chardonnay Unfiltered Napa Valley 2010
Elegant and concentrated. Nicely balanced with smooth, ripe, layers of fig, pear and apricot flavors and a dash of toasty oak.The Newton Red Label Chardonnay blends fruit grown at Newton's estate vineyards with fruit from other Napa, Sonoma and coastal vineyards, with the goal of expressing the purity of fruit.
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.
External Reviews for Newton Chardonnay Unfiltered Napa Valley
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.
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.
Widely acclaimed as a California wine trailblazer, Newton Vineyard was one of the first wineries on Spring Mountain, a rugged yet serene appellation located west of St. Helena on the eastern flank of the Mayacamas range.
Offers a tangy grapefruit-tangerine-citrus edge, with floral scents, turning delicate on the finish, yet retaining its snappy fruit character.

This perennial favorite has a silky, creamy texture with just a hint of oak. Ripe tropical fruit, pear and green apple flavors are complemented by notes of lemon custard, vanilla bean and baking spice. A touch of flint and minerality further add to its refined elegance.
'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 monk fish, braised pork with apples, or salmon with tarragon aioli.' -Winery
