Product Overview

The 2018 Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is sourced from a small selection of family-owned, sustainably farmed vineyards on the Sonoma Coast as well as the estate Camp Meeting Ridge vineyard.

Persistent acidity and chalky texture lead to a refined, long, and juicy finish.

Appellation: Sonoma Coast AVA
Farming Practices: Sustainable
Aging: 11 months in French oak, 18% new
Winemaker: Chantal Forthun

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Bursting with fresh, salty acidity, this appellation wine conjures the coast from which it comes, offering beguilingly soft layers of elegant richness. Apple, pear, nutmeg and a whiff of lemon meringue play well on the palate, with plenty of length and breadth to impress." -VB, 10/1/20

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Lithe and juicy, featuring well-framed flavors of pear, apple and ripe melon, packed with fresh acidity. Pastry and allspice notes show on the engaging finish, accented by hints of dried savory. Drink now through 2024. 18,000 cases made." -KM, 8/31/20

92 Points - Vinous
"The 2018 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is bright, floral and very nicely lifted, with lovely citrus confit and floral character. White pepper, mint, crushed rocks and sage add nuance to this striking, translucent Chardonnay from Flowers. The energy and tension of the year really comes through. This is such a gorgeous wine, especially in its peer group." -AG, Apr/2020

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast has pretty aromas of white peach, candle smoke, toast and flinty touches with an uplift of floral perfume. The palate is light-bodied and fresh with restrained fruits and a mineral-driven finish. 18,000 cases produced." -EB, 9/24/20
