Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

John Kongsgaard told me that when the unfiltered Chardonnay from Newton was first launched in the early 1980s, the fruit came entirely from what is now the Judge Vineyard of Kongsgaard. No wonder that wine was so spectacular in those days. It also had an incredible aging curve as well. This wine continues to be a strong effort. The 2013 Chardonnay Unfiltered exhibits notes of white peach, honeysuckle and some brioche in a medium to full-bodied, lusciously fruity, rich, complex and full style. It doesn’t have the minerality of the old days of the early 1980s, but this is a brilliant Chardonnay, representing one of Napa’s finest efforts.

Product Description:

"The creamy texture and balanced acidity are punctuated by rich fruit flavors, including melon, fig, and baked apples. These luscious flavors are complemented by baking spices, vanilla and honey accents, all of which linger on the long finish.

With its benchmark balance of fruit and acidity, our Unfiltered Chardonnay is delicious with a wide range of dishes, from roasted sea bass to pasta in a butter sauce. It makes a lovely aperitif served with crostini topped with wild mushrooms, an ideal first course wine with salmon chowder, and a memorable wine for a cheese course." -Winery
