2009 Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Wine & Spirits
When it comes to chardonnay, Flowers's Sonoma Coast bottling consistently delivers a fresh, fragrant, silken, mouthwatering wine. The freshness in the 2009 tastes real, the tension of the acidity captures the briskness of the far coast (70 percent of the blend in this vintage). The texture and flavor are woven together into a soft cushion of white raspberry, tart lime, white flowers, silk and down.
All dairy and cream with a fine, clear white fruit and charming leesy texture.
Clean, fresh and snappy, with pleasant ripe apple, pear and floral scents that take on a creamy scent and texture. Drink now through 2016.
From the winemaker: "Light straw color. Attractive and delicate aromas of white flowers, tangerine and coconut are evident before opening up to green apples and crisp Anjou pear. Citrus and stone-fruit flavors develop on the palate with the characteristic lemon backbone of the Sonoma Coast. Medium bodied with a crisp and bright acidity the wine finishes with a distinctive coastal minerality."
