"Readers looking for a California interpretation of a French Batard-Montrachet should check out the 2002 Chardonnay Unfiltered. Perhaps the finest Chardonnay Su Hua Newton has yet produced, it possesses enormous fruit, richness, and extract, but is exquisitely balanced, with great purity. A sweet nose of orange marmalade, lemon oil, and butter are backed by subtle wood and wet steel characteristics. A brilliant effort, it is a profound Chardonnay to drink now and over the next 7-8 years."
Newton Vineyard Unfiltered Chardonnay was the first Unfiltered Chardonnay to be produced in Napa. It comes from Newton's own vineyard in Carneros, and is the cornerstone of the winery. The nose is filled with summer berries and citric aromas. The mouth feel is rich and the bouquet lingers forever.
