2010 Flowers Vineyard Chardonnay Sonoma Coast

Wine Description

Pale straw color. Pretty aromas of lime blossom, meringue and lemon zest are mirrored on the palate and underscored with subtle notes of fresh cut fennel, lemon thyme, and crisp comice pear. With a bright and refreshing acidity, this Chardonnay finishes with a mouthwatering minerality that is typical of the extreme Sonoma Coast. Delicious now, or cellar through 2014.

    Winery Notes: Showing balanced depth and complexity, light straw to golden color. White peach and lime citrus aromas. A clean wine with lean acidity refreshes the palate. Stone minerals and luscious melon equally contend for attention in this mouth filling, delicious wine.

    Light gold. Deep, honeyed aromas of ripe apricot and peach. A round, luscious chardonnay, with exotic passion fruit, poached pear and sweet butter flavors. Finishes on a supple peach note, with a lift of acidity.

    Brilliant, slightly straw color. Citrus aromas of lime and lemon-butter followed by subtle notes of clove and vanilla bean. Fruit flavors and honey on entry complimented by round mouth-feel and defined CMR minerality leading to a long, complex finish. This wine spent 11 months in barrel and an additional year at the winery in bottle prior to this release. Drinking impressively now and will continue to develop.
