Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2017
Using organic and sustainable farming practices, Flowers carefully nurtures Chardonnay from vineyards located on the 'extreme' Sonoma Coast. The grapes benefit directly from the influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean which provides cool daytime breezes during bright sunny days to ensure proper ripening and chilly evening fogs to guarantee lively acidity for freshness in the finished wines.

Wine EnthusiastThis well-made, widely appealing wine is inviting in jasmine and orange-blossom aromas, with a tension of energy and focus in its well-integrated acidity. The oak is behaved and quietly complementary, boosting the hints of nutmeg and gingerbread.
Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast gives subtle notes of ripe pears, allspice and applesauce with pineapple and lemon juice sparks plus a hint of baking bread. Medium-bodied, elegant and refreshing, it has a lovely creaminess to the texture and touch of nutmeg on the savory finish.
VinousThe 2017 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is textured and inviting, with gently lilting fruit and lifted, precise aromatics that give the wine its distinctive feel. Hints of lemon, chamomile and apricot grace the soft finish. Understated and gracious, the Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a pretty wine to drink now and over the next handful of years.
