2008 Unfiltered Chardonnay
Our Unfiltered Chardonnay has a devoted following of wine lovers who appreciate this rich, unfiltered style of wine. Our Chardonnay vineyard in Carneros was planted nearly 30 years ago and this region has since become known for producing superb cool-climate Chardonnay.
At harvest, our winemaker works closely with the harvest crew, walking the vineyard rows to hand select fruit at the peak of ripeness. In the cellar, quality and purity are never compromised at the hands of convenience. Newton Unﬁltered Chardonnay is fermented with wild yeast, native to our Carneros vineyards, and is bottled unﬁltered to preserve the natural fruit essence and to foster the wine’s unique aroma and ﬂavor.This exceptional dedication to nurturing the richness that nature provides allows Newton Vineyard to produce wines of brilliance and purity.
The 2008 Unfiltered Chardonnay is an inviting dark straw hue. This powerful wine opens with ripe melon and fig notes layered with allspice, cinnamon and caramel aromas. Flavors of baked pear, poached apple, caramel and fresh pie crust persist on the lingering creamy finish.
This opulent Chardonnay can complement a wide variety of dishes. Lobster bisque is a natural match, as well as poached fish or pasta with a cream sauce.
