Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2013
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Wine & SpiritsA captivating balancing act, this blend of fruit from the Camp Meeting Ridge estate and other coastal sites feels at once concentrated and weightless. The first impression is one of healthy, plump fruit-ripe apricot, perhaps a hint of caramelized sugar-but it hews to a clean line, the flavors growing more earthy as taut acidity pulls toward crisp, green-tinged suggestions of seashells and borage flowers. More than the flavors themselves, it's the overall impression of satiny grace that gives this coastal white its beauty."
Wine EnthusiastYoung and light, with a nutty coating around flavorful layers of pear and yellow apple, this wine has a crispness that remains balanced throughout. A good food wine, with enough acidity to stay refreshing, this is a fine, fairly larger-production white built to impress.
Wine SpectatorFresh, juicy and lively, with pretty lemon-lime and green apple notes that are cleansing and persistent. Drink now through 2019. 13,000 cases made.
