External Reviews for Newton Vineyards Chardonnay Red Label Napa/Sonoma Counties
Scents of smoke, fresh cut flowers and ripe fruit lead to a rich, multilayered wine, with tiers of ripe pear, spice, nutmeg and hazelnut, finishing with a burst of pure fruit and honeydew melon. Drink now through 2008.
The 2003 Chardonnay Red Label displays straightforward tropical fruit, heady alcohol, and good ripeness. Drink over the next 1ndash;3 years.
The 2001 Chardonnay Naturally Fermented (58% Napa and 42% Sonoma fruit) exhibits copious quantities of butterscotch and caramel characteristics in its evolved, fruity personality. Drink it over the next year.
Leuchtendes Gelb mit goldenem Schimmer. Reife Birnen, Quittensaft und Mandelblüten in der finessenreichen, 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.
I've actually always loved the Newton Chardonnay, but for some reason, it had fallen off my radar until I retasted it recently. The 2008 vintage still has the prominent creamy oak and toasted nut notes that Newton is famous for, as well as ripe tropical fruit elements, but the wine seems brighter than I remember, with fresh acidity and a smooth, clean finish. A classic match for pasta alfredo, this wine would also be amazing with fish in cream sauce, grilled mushrooms or creamy cheeses such as brie, camembert or gouda.
Fruit-driven, though on the simple side, with a whiff of candied pineapple commingling with creamy vanilla scents. Drink now through 2006.
Winemaker Notes - 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. The velvety mouthfeel of this well-balanced Chardonnay persists throughout the lingering and refreshing citrus finish. The lush and approachable flavors of this balanced wine make it a versatile, food-friendly choice. Winemaker Chris Millard suggests pairing with baked halibut, roasted poultry or a savory pecan tart.
