    The 2016 growing season began early and throughout July and August, gentle weather allowed the grapes to develop at a steady pace. By the end of August, thanks to several warm days, they reached their ultimate ripeness. Matured in French oak barrels (24% new, for a skilful balance of oak flavours), over 12 months, the wine is concentrated and deep, yet also bright and fresh.


A VINTAGE AT ONE WITH NATURE

Pioneering principles
Pioneering principles

Founded more than 40 years ago in California's Napa Valley, Newton Vineyard was born from a vision of working with nature, to create wines with a true sense of terroir. Inspired to capture the essence of a vineyard, the forward-thinking estate helped to pioneer the art of unfiltered wines in the U.S, a technique which showcases a wine's fullness and complexity. In the fresh character of its Unfiltered Chardonnay 2016, Newton’s commitment to natural wine-making shines through.

The story of this deeply elegant vintage began in the Napa Valley’s Carneros and Rutherford regions, from where Newton sources most of its Chardonnay grapes. With its cool, coastal influences, Carneros’s fruit brought exceptional length and freshness to the blend. Meanwhile, the warmer days and richer soils of Rutherford, in the heart of Napa Valley, offered volume and body. Harvested just as they reached their perfect ripeness, the grapes of 2016 were filled with promise.

Following nature’s lead, the wine was barrel-fermented for enhanced flavour, using indigenous yeasts to preserve the fruit’s essence, and matured in Newton’s cool caves, subtly tunnelled into the hillside. Each barrel lot was hand-stirred only when needed to re-suspend the sediment – protecting the wine naturally from the perils of oxidation and augmenting its complexity. Blended from those individual lots and bottled unfiltered, the 2016 is superbly crisp and fresh.
