Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay 2014
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 cuvÃ©e. 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.
Wine SpectatorFramed by rich, buttery oak that supports a mix of apple, melon, spice and apricot flavors, this turns elegant and refined on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. 13,653 cases made.
