Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2016
*This item may have limited availability - please call ahead to have us check stock!*
Using organic and sustainable farming practices, we carefully nurture Chardonnay in our estate vineyards located on the "extreme" Sonoma Coast. The grapes benefit directly from the influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean which provides cool daytime breezes during bright sunny days to ensure proper ripening and chilly evening fogs to guarantee lively acidity for freshness in the finished wines.
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Wine EnthusiastThis juicy coastal wine offers medium acidity and a lightness on the palate. It is a well-crafted, balanced effort, exuding wet stone, lemon zest, apple and white flower aromas and flavors.
Whisky AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast offers up subtle lemongrass, grapefruit and nectarine notes with touches of chalk dust and fresh ginger. Medium-bodied with well-played freshness accenting the creamy texture and quiet intensity of stone fruit flavors, it delivers a long, minerally finish.
DecanterFrom the 'true' Sonoma Coast on Camp Meeting Ridge, so-called because local Kashaya Indians and trappers once traded there. A subdued nose leads onto a palate that spells ripeness and power, countered by vivid freshness on the fluid, concentrated palate. A hint of smoke - this was fermented and matured in French oak - rounds out the rich palate, with ripe stone fruit peeping through alongside zesty, ripe lemon peel.
