Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay 2016 75cl 14.5% ABV
Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay, Napa Valley, USA
This White Wine is intense, focused and complex. Pink grapefruit, fresh fig and pear aromas are enhanced by elements of spice and vanilla, contributing additional depth and intrigue.
Flavours of lemon curd, marzipan and white peach evolve in the mouth, enlivened by beautifully balanced natural acidity.
The 2014 Unfiltered Chardonnay was 100 percent barrel fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine was then aged for a total of 12 months in French oak barrels, 30 percent of which were new.
During maturation every barrel was hand-stirred weekly to re-suspend the sediment, a technique that protects the wine from oxidation and creates added complexity. The individual lots were then blended and bottled unfiltered.
