Flowers Camp Meeting Ridge Chardonnay 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

92+ points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): Another superb wine, the 2012 Chardonnay Camp Meeting Ridge Vineyard is showing beautifully today. Lemon, pastry, nectarine, sweet spices and flowers are all very much alive in the glass. Underlying veins of acidity and minerality provide support. The 2012 finishes with substantial energy and pure power. What a gorgeous wine this is. Drink: 2014-2020. (Feb 2014)

As nursery owners in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Walt and Joan Flowers had long dreamed of combining their love of wine with their passion for agriculture. They knew they wanted to produce their favorite varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; what they didn't know was that their path would eventually lead them across country to Northern California's rugged Sonoma Coast. After responding to a small classified ad in a national wine publication, that's exactly where they landed. In 1989, after many information-gathering trips to Napa and Sonoma, Walt and Joan purchased 321 acres, including a ridge top, high above the Pacific Ocean on the northern Sonoma Coast. With the same determination they drew on to build their successful nursery business; the Flowers proceeded with the dream of producing their favorite cool-climate varietals in a place they believed uniquely suited to growing them. Today, Flowers Winery produces 15,000 cases of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from its two estate properties, Camp Meeting Ridge and Flowers Ranch, as well as select vineyards in the coolest regions of the Sonoma Coast AVA, which are farmed to Flowers' specifications by their own crews. In addition to direct consumer sales, the wines are sold to fine restaurants and retailers in the US and overseas. Read less
