DescriptionPerched on top of soaring coastal ridges that border the Pacific Ocean, Flowers' estate vineyards were some of the first planted on the "extreme" Sonoma Coast (1991). Flowers' vineyards rise up just two miles from the rugged Pacific Ocean cliffs at elevations of 1,150 to 1,875 feet. The 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.
Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay has a light straw hue with expressive aromas of citrus and lime-blossom highlighted by honeysuckle and wet flint. The palate is heightened by a compelling, site-specific coastal minerality, textural salinity, and precise acidity that carry brilliantly through the finish. A true expression of both the grape and its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. (from the vintner)
