2012 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.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 vintage opens with honey suckle on the nose, with the richness of a Sauternes. Fruit aromas of fig and melon are followed by more complex notes of honey and brown sugar. Baking spices with hints of vanilla and almond follow as caramelized sugar notes add to the voluptuous depth of aromas. On the palate, grilled pineapple flavors offer fresh acidity while creaminess is balanced. Cream and brioche linger while the freshness of fruit remains forward. The wine is a satisfying weight with present oak that is delicately integrated.

    Poured smelling acidic and citrusy right out of the refrigerator. After a few minutes in the decanter we had a bit of butter and some malolactic creaminess. Well balanced, fantastic and classic Napa Chardonnay. We took a while to drink the bottle and it help up wonderfully as it warned up.
