Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Rich aromas of pineapple, citrus, vanilla stalk, and chewy caramel rise fill the nose with a hint of baked pear. The palate is full-bodied with hints of oak, warm butter, and fresh tropical fruit. Long and nuanced on the finish. (Jun 2016)
The cool coastal influence allow the grapes to ripen slowly, leading to a rich and complex Chardonnay with exceptional balance. This unique Chardonnay offers rich aromas of citrus, pineapple and apple-pear and vanilla flavors. The palate is crisp and balanced with a touch of sweet vanilla and oak undertones.
|Wine maker notes
|To ensure its vibrancy and crisp varietal flavor, our Chardonnay is fermented in stainless steel tanks with only partial malolactic fermentation.
|More than 25 years ago, Paul Newman created his first product—a salad dressing he mixed up for friends and neighbors in his basement. Packaged in old wine bottles with parchment labels, the salad dressing was a surprise hit, and Newman’s Own was born.
Over the years, Newman’s Own launched pasta sauces, popcorn, salsa, pizza and even a line of organic foods. But something was missing at the table: wine.
Today, Newman’s Own crafts world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Pinot Noir from grapes sourced from premier vineyards throughout California. “We’ve come full circle. We’re back to wine bottles, but this time, we’re filling them with wine that will complement my salad dressing and pasta sauce. Wine was the only thing missing at dinner time—now the meal is complete,” Paul Newman said in early 2008.
