2016 Newton "Unfiltered" Napa Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1437790 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Incredibly refined, powerful and sumptuously smooth. Notes of nectarine, almond, custard combined with apple, oyster shell, smoke and a touch of butterscotch. A rounded and stunningly lingering finish. Inner quote mark

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a delicious Chardonnay that shows just the right balance between dried citrus rind and pithy grapefruit and vanilla and butter. Full-bodied with lovely phenolics, providing depth and structure. Vibrant yet oily on the finish. Drink now or hold. Inner quote mark (3/2019)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This vintage is the first at Newton for Alberto Bianchi, who had made wine at other Moët Hennessy properties in Margaret River, Marlborough and Mendoza after starting out in Italy. He focused this chardonnay on fruit from Carneros, with a contribution from Rutherford; it fermented spontaneously in French oak barrels (24 percent new) where it aged as well. It’s refreshing, firm and juicy, a sleek chardonnay that feels carefully crafted. Time in oak adds a salted caramel note to the brisk and earthy finish. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Entirely barrel fermented, this white is beautifully aromatic in pear, toasted oak and hazelnut. High toned, floral and earthy, it shows deft balance in the glass, offering elegance and impressive complexity that lasts gingerly on the finish. (VB) Inner quote mark (1/2020)
