Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay 2014

Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay 2014

SKU 13538


2013 Unfiltered Chardonnay reflects the opulence and profound intensity of the vintage with rich complex and vibrant fruit flavors balanced by savory barrel fermentation influences. The aromas of grapefruit, honey, vanilla, brioche and apricot are fresh and inviting. The palate is intense and powerful with rich fig and pear fruit flavors balanced by subtle creamy oak, nutty savory notes and a long lingering finish. While most people think of Chardonnay as a fish and fowl wine, we like to pair it with the unexpected: a grilled veal chop or pork tenderloin. Of course it's also delicious with mushroom dishes of all sorts and one of our favorites is risotto with chanterelles and shitakes.

Wine AdvocateNewton's unfiltered Chardonnay has been a consistent winner since it was first launched in the early 1980s, when the fruit was coming from what is today John Kongsgaard's Judge cuvée. Newton is still making this wine unfiltered, and the 2014 Chardonnay Unfiltered is rich and displays beautiful white peach, honeysuckle and tropical fruit, some nice, crisp wet pebble minerality in the background and a full-bodied mouthfeel. Deep, layered and complete, this is a big-time winner.
