Flowers Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2014

In 1989, after many information-gathering trips to Napa and Sonoma, Walt and Joan Flowers, nursery owners in Pennsylvania, purchased 321 acres, including a ridge top, high above the Pacific Ocean on the northern Sonoma Coast. Flowers' estate vineyards were some of the first planted on the "extreme" Sonoma Coast. The cool maritime breezes and coastal fog cool the vineyards during the heat of summer allowing fruit to fully mature with fresh, complex flavors and lively acidity.

Attractive and delicate aromas of white flowers, tangerine and coconut are evident before opening up to green apples and crisp Anjou pear. Citrus and stone-fruit flavors develop on the palate with the characteristic lemon backbone of the Sonoma Coast. Medium bodied with a crisp and bright acidity the wine finishes with a distinctive coastal minerality.
