2005 Newton Chardonnay Unfiltered

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.
