The 2018 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is bright, floral and very nicely lifted, with lovely citrus confit and floral character. White pepper, mint, crushed rocks and sage add nuance to this striking, translucent Chardonnay from Flowers. The energy and tension of the year really comes through. This is such a gorgeous wine, especially in its peer group.
