Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine EnthusiastNew winemaking and a sizable replanting effort at the producer's Spring Mountain estate are starting to show dividends in this new release, a full-bodied style true to its heritage. Bright acidity pops around a taste of pomelo and yuzu, giving the wine a zest of lemon before a caramelized finish.
Wine SpectatorVibrant and slow to open, with a mix of snappy pear, baked apple, pineapple and cedary oak, giving this a raw texture now; best to cellar short-term.
