Longtime fans will love this tasty new release, and this Chardonnay will assuredly gain new friends with its creamy, lush and savory finish!
The folks at UC Davis said it couldn’t be done. When Walt and Joan Flowers saw a newspaper ad for 321 acres of land on the Sonoma Coast, just 2 miles from the Pacific Ocean, they were immediately intrigued, but took pause. Only a few families – the Hirsches and the Bohans – were successfully growing grapes in such a cool part of California. Thankfully the Flowers ignored the ‘experts’ and planted Camp Meeting Ridge in 1991, so named for its history as an indian encampment and later, a site for religious retreats. Today Flowers is known for making some of the finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in America.
Aromas of sliced apples, lemon curd and hints of pineapple. Full-bodied with peach and pineapple flavors. Layered and beautiful. Lovely tannic tension. Flavorful finish. Savory.
