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 varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; what they didn't know was that their path would eventually lead them cross country to Northern California's rugged Sonoma Coast from their home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. 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 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from its two estate properties, Camp Meeting Ridge Vineyard and Sea View Ridge Vineyard, as well as select vineyards in the coolest regions of the Sonoma Coast AVA, which are farmed to Flowers' specifications by their own crews. 

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.

A lovely nose of lemon curd, baked green apple and a bit of pine. Medium-bodied with a delightful, smooth texture. Very elegant and refined. Well balanced and linear with a savory finish. Charming. Drink now or hold.

I love the Chardonnay from this estate, and their appellation 2019 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast is well worth seeking out, revealing a lighter gold hue as well as a crisp, nicely defined bouquet of poached pear, citrus, spice, and hazelnuts. Beautiful on the palate as well, it's medium-bodied and has nicely integrated acidity, notable balance, and a great finish. I

Rich and finely textured, with concentrated white fruit flavors that show buttery hints. The spicy finish lingers with minerally snap and creamy accents. Drink now through 2025. 18,000 cases made.

The 2019 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is soft, open-knit and gracious, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Dried pear, chamomile, spice and floral notes are all laced together. The Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a blend of deselected barrels from Camp Meeting Ridge and purchased fruit from sites on the West Sonoma Coast. The bright acids suggest a year or two in bottle will be beneficial. Alternatively, I would open the 2019 well in advance.
