Quick Overview

Widely acclaimed as a California wine trailblazer, Newton Vineyard was one of the first wineries on Spring Mountain, established in 1977, the vision of founders Dr. Su Hua and Peter Newton, who recognized the potential of Spring Mountain as a prime viticultural region.

Newton’s approach to winemaking is meticulous, using techniques based on an old-world style including natural fermentation and bottling without filtration. The grapes are handled with care, hand-picked in small lots and transferred for gentle pressing to the Spring Mountain cellar. The winery is custom-designed to allow lots from 112 distinct parcels to ferment separately, affording the winemaker an abundance of options when constructing final blends. Barrel aging takes place in a cave built into the mountain directly underneath the winery. The artisan approach pioneered thirty years ago continues to drive the winemaking philosophy at Newton Vineyard today.

2012 Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay, They sourced their Chardonnay from two regions, Carneros and Knights Valley. The 2012 growing season was ideal in every way. Moderate daytime temperatures and cool nights from spring to late summer resulted in slow maturation, allowing the fruit to develop superb complexity while retaining balanced acidity. Unfiltered Chardonnay is 100 percent barrel-fermented using indigenous yeasts. The wine is then aged for a total of 15 months in French oak barrels, 30 percent of which are new. During maturation every barrel is hand-stirred weekly to resuspend the sediment, a technique that protects the wine and creates added complexity. The individual lots are then blended and bottled unfiltered.

The warm 2012 vintage resulted in a complex, rich and powerful chardonnay with aromas of jasmine, apricot, grapefruit and subtle spice. The palate is fresh with a creamy texture marked by notes of stonefruit, pear and roasted almonds which is complemented by a subtle soft acidity leading to a rich, long and intense finish.
