2018 FLOWERS SONOMA COAST CHARDONNAY
Sourced from Flowers Sonoma Coast Estate, Camp Meeting Ridge Estate Vineyard reinforced with a selection of family-owned plots, chosen for their coastal influence, shared farming philosophies, and complimenting fruit characteristics, Flowers Chardonnay is perfectly balanced, layered, and expressive. Their natural winemaking style, extreme fruit standards, and top-level farming coincide, shaping this wine which has become a standard for California Coastal Chardonnay.
Notes From Edward, ” Growing up on the East Coast, I spent countless Summer Days fishing, and catching Blue Claws on the Jersey Shore. So when I first visited the Sonoma Coast, I was mesmerized… there’s a pure essence of Wild Ocean, strong winds and powerful currents. The combination of these dramatic elements create thick skins on the grapes, and robust wines accordingly. Living in Cali now for over 20 years, I personally love Sonoma Coast Chardonnay with pan-seared Halibut or grilled Lobster tail … fresh, vibrant, and full of zing! Combined with a Super Rich finish, each sip is delectable. I invite you to Enjoy pairing with your Favorite Seafood, try it with a Crab Feast or Lobster Boil. It’s a perfect white wine for entertaining. Great Wines will make your palate and Life glisten with glee. And a good Chardonnay, well I can drink this one all day…” CaliHiWines 96+ POINTS
93WE | From Wine Enthusiast, “Bursting with fresh, salty acidity, this appellation wine conjures the coast from which it comes, offering beguilingly soft layers of elegant richness. Apple, pear, nutmeg and a whiff of lemon meringue play well on the palate, with plenty of length and breadth to impress. ” WINE ENTHUSIAST 93 POINTS
93JD | From Jeb Dunnuck, “… this classy 2018 has notes of musky pineapple, crushed citrus, and white flowers as well as a kiss of salty minerality. It has bright acidity, beautiful balance, and is just a classic, elegant Sonoma Coast Chardonnay that does everything right. ” JEB DUNNUCK 93 POINTS
