97 Flowers 2011 Moon Select Chardonnay

“Let the conversations about minerality begin. Whatever it is, or wherever it comes from, it’s here big time, adding a lick of steel and a metallic mouthfeel to the underlying fruit. And what powerful fruit it is, ranging from orange and guava to honeydew and citron. This bone dry, crisp Chardonnay is a game changer that will make you look at California Chardonnay…”  — S.H.  (2/1/2014)

Flowers Spring 2014 Offer – Insight and Maturity Through Experience

Flowers is delighted to announce the Spring 2014 Offer to our mailing list members.

This year signifies the Silver Anniversary of the realization of the dream that Walt and Joan Flowers began in 1989 through the establishment of Camp Meeting Ridge Estate Vineyard, first planted in 1991. After twenty-five years of successful winegrowing on the extreme Sonoma Coast producing wines of verve, balance and distinction, we remain poised for the unique challenges Mother Nature brings each season. A quarter of a century has given us the confidence to understand this unique and rugged location, and to learn how to best uncover beauty from the diversity within our Estate vineyards.

“The significance of this milestone is that the vines are now fully established in this challenging and remote site.  This is analogous to the vineyard reaching adulthood when the inconsistencies of youth morph into the responsibility of maturity.” — Dave Keatley, Winemaker

96 Flowers 2011 Camp Meeting Ridge Chardonnay

“[Camp Meeting Ridge] captures the ocean mist in a savory, earthen chardonnay, its mellow richness transforming fine lees, lemon and smoky green tea scents into a harmonious wine that’s easy to drink in quantity and still delivers a lot of flavor. The acidity itself is flavorful and persistent, adding to the umami depth.”

Announcing the Fall 2013 Release: A Lesson in Patience and Fastidiousness

SVR block 19We are pleased to introduce the most distinctive, unique and expressive wines in recent Flowers history. This year’s Fall Offer introduces the 2011 vintage of Block-specific and Estate wines that are the culmination of continuing insights obtained from our “Project Terroir” initiative, dedication to biodynamic vineyard practices as well as applying old world winemaking techniques.  The offer also includes our first 100% varietal Pinot Meunier, a grape connossieurs will most likely recognize as one of the three varieties allowed in the production of Champagne and rarely produced as a still wine on its own.

Read more about Pinot Meunier, the 2011 vintage, updates on Project Terroir along with tasting notes and a recipe in the Fall 2013 Newsletter by clicking here.
