Flowers Camp Meeting Ridge Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Vibrant aromas of lemon peel and orange blossom highlight the season maintaining the focus on fruit purity of the 2018 Camp Meeting Ridge Chardonnay. The palate is rich, full-bodied yet elegant with beautiful hints of fresh lemon, orange blossom and dried lemon peel. A mineral character and crushed stones complete the mouthfeel of this wine and its long persistent finish.
The 2018 Chardonnay Camp Meeting Ridge is a wine of pure and total class. Bright citrus, crushed rocks, white flowers, mint and a touch of slate infused the 2018 with striking layers of nuance. Light on its feet and wonderfully complex, the 2018 has so much to offer. It is also one of the most pedigreed and nuanced Chardonnays I have tasted from Flowers.
Coming from the Fort Ross-Seaview appellation, the 2018 Chardonnay Camp Meeting Ridge is more mineral-laced, with a touch of marine-like iodine in its orchard and citrus fruits. Nicely textured and medium to full-bodied, with bright acidity, it's going to benefit from a year (or two) in bottle and should keep for a solid 7-8 years or more.
The 2018 Chardonnay Camp Meeting Ridge has pretty aromas of flint, roasted almonds, white peaches and beeswax. The palate is light-bodied, fresh and gently savory with a long, delicate finish. 1,300 cases produced.
