 2013 Newton 'Unfiltered' Chardonnay Napa Valley

Consistently one of Napa's most opulent and satisfying Chardonnays, Newton's proven time and again that this barrel-fermented beauty from Carneros DELIVERS. Parker says this exhibits notes of "white peach, honeysuckle and some brioche in a medium to full-bodied, lusciously fruity, rich, complex and full style. It doesn't have the minerality of the old days of the early 1980s, but this is a brilliant Chardonnay, representing one of Napa's finest efforts."

The Napa Valley of the 1970's is a far cry from the one we know today. In those early years, there were only a few trailblazers who dared to venture into the wilds of remote areas like Spring Mountain. Instead of simply seeing trees and rugged land, Dr. Sue Hua and Peter Newton envisioned vineyards. In 1977 they purchased a one mile block of land on Spring Mountain overlooking the Napa Valley. When they began planting vines, they did so in 112 separate blocks scattered amongst forested land to maintain the natural balance of the native habitat. At Newton, meticulous farming is met with meticulous winemaking, as the winery was designed so that the fruit has to endure as minimal handling as possible. Caves were dug into the hillside (preserving the gardens above, and offering barrels the ideal natural environment for aging). True to their guiding philosophy of working in harmony with nature, grapes are carefully handled, gently pressed and fermented as individual lots from each of those parcels. Newton is quite renowned for their "Unfiltered" wines, which have been bottled without filtration, preserving the wine's vital freshness and loads of personality.
