Winemaker Notes

Pale straw color. Vibrant aromas of lemon curd and honeysuckle on the bouquet with flavors of lime and ripe pear on the palate. Rich and lush, the wine is highlighted with a crisp, clean acidity and distinctive minerality.

Wine & Spirits

Walt and Joan Flowers planted the east-facing slope of Camp Meeting Ridge in the early 1990s. As their first vineyard, it was something of an experiment, one barely protected from the Pacific two miles further west. It's taken twenty years and some replanting for these vines to settle into the mash up of marine sediments and volcanic rock, which creates a character in the char­donnay that parallels oak's woodiness. This vintage melds it into a roasted hazelnut scent, given over to floral delicacy as the wine evolves in the glass. Sea air and citrus cool the flavors, tightening the chardonnay fat into a fine and graceful richness. There's pinkness to that citrus flavor that would be delicious with roast salmon.

Wine Spectator

Sleek and elegant, with ripe, well-defined, subtle pear, honeydew and honeysuckle notes that sit easy on the palate, with enticing flavors that linger. Drink now through 2018.
