"Lithe and juicy, featuring well-framed flavors of pear, apple and ripe melon, packed with fresh acidity. Pastry and allspice notes show on the engaging finish, accented by hints of dried savory."

Intense and fresh aromas of citrus and white flower are balanced with pure fruit flavors and chalky texture. Delicate oak notes are combined with a persistent acidity, minty graphite in the palate, leading to a refined, long and juicy finish,

Vintage

With mild temperatures leading to a long growing season and a surprise-free harvest, the 2018 vintage can only be described as idyllic. Alternating spells of cool and warm weather during bloom led to varying berry sizes, perfect for developing complexity in Pinot Noir. Morning fog, afernoon sunshine and a lack of heat spikes throughout the summer allowed for a long ripening period that developed fruit with excellent natural acidity and beautiful favors.

Winemaking

Every Flowers wine is made to express the land where it was farmed. Our coastal proximity and high-elevation vineyards give our wine its
distinct minerality and fresh natural acidity. Farmed sustainably, fermented with 100% native yeast, and craed with minimal intervention in the cellar, Flowers Chardonnay is a pure expression of the rugged and extreme Sonoma Coast.

Winegrowing

Sourced from a small selection of family-owned vineyards on the Sonoma Coast as well as our Camp Meeting Ridge estate. Each vineyard is carefully chosen for its farming practices, coastal in influence and fruit standards.
