Wine Description

(From «nv» Vintage) Very dry, a lean, austere Chardonnay currently marked by aloof flavors of lemons, limes and oak. Yet there's something going on. As the wine warms in the glass it becomes richer, showing hidden pineapple tart, macadamia and creme brulee. Firm, minerally acidity is there throughout, making for a mouthwatering cleanliness.

Winemaker's Notes

The Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay 1999 is bursting with numerous layers of fruit. It begins with hints of oranges and develops into peaches and passion fruit. All Newton Chardonnays are naturally fermented to obtain the complex aromatics, in handcrafted French oak barrels. They then go through the malolactic fermentation, again naturally. No acid is ever added in Newton Chardonnays. They have good structure because of controlling the yield in the vineyard.
