Sonoma County, California
The 2016 Newton Skyside Chardonnay (Red Label) is a beautiful white wine gem from Sonoma County. Newton Vineyard was named by Robert Parker as one of the World’s 100 Greatest Wine Estates. It is a spectacular winery with terraced vineyards, on the dramatic slopes of Spring Mountain. The winery is known for naturally fermented, unfiltered wines handcrafted with estate-grown fruit from Spring Mountain and Carneros.
At Newton Vineyard, the lone pine tree that sits atop the mountain ridge, known as Pino Solo, can be distinctly seen from the valley floor and symbolizes the individuality of our wine and our winemaking approach. Newton seeks to preserve the unique, individual quality of fruit achieved in the vineyard to produce wines that best express the essence of the fruit and nature’s intertwining of sun, soil and vine.
Newton Skyside Chardonnay has ripe fruit characteristics of apple, pear, and apricot, balanced by a touch of oak. The lush and approachable flavors of this balanced wine make it a versatile, food-friendly choice. Try it with baked halibut, roasted poultry or a savory pecan tart.
