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.
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.
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.
