Flowers Chardonnay Sonoma 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Showing balanced depth and complexity, light straw to golden color, aromas unfold with layers of lemon, pear, apricot and wet stone minerality. This vintage shows crispness on the palate, with a lush and balanced citrus finish. Showing very well now and will continue to gain complexity for 1 - 3 years.

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

Refreshingly lively and svelte, offering a trim mix of ripe pear, apricot and golden apple. This is tight and vibrant, with good depth, intensity and length. Drink now through 2017. 6,000 cases made. -JL ** SOLD OUT **

The Sonoma Coast s rocky, well-drained terrain and direct proximity to the cool Pacific Ocean allow us to grow and produce Chardonnay with fresh, bright fruit flavors, complex minerality and bright acidity.
