Newton Chardonnay Red Label
Newton Red Label Chardonnay exhibits a lively character and purity of fruit. Red Label Chardonnay is a welcome companion to the dining table, offering a fresh expression of the varietal.
Newton owns one vineyard and manages three others in the southern slopes of the Carneros region, where the cool bay breezes and foggy nights results in chardonnay grapes that ripen beautifully, yet are not high in sugar.
The wine is fermented with indigenous yeast in French oak, malolactic fermentation takes place naturally. The wine is aged in French oak for 6-9 months and the barrels that have the most natural acidity are bottled as Red Label.

The layers of flavor and appealing texture persist throughout the plush, creamy finish.Newton Claret
