Flowers Rosé (Pinot Noir) 2019 Sonoma Coast
Winemaker Notes:Pinot Noir grapes underwent a gental cremant press cycle, lightly extracting an elegant and expressive Rose with bright fruit and vivid acidity.
Every Flowers wine is made to express the land where it was farmed. Our coastal proximity and high-elevation vineyards give our wine its distinct minerality and fresh acidity. Farmed sustainably, fermented with 100% native yeast, and crafted with minimal intervention in the cellar, Flowers Rosé is a pure expression of the rugged and extreme Sonoma Coast.
TASTING NOTES Elegant and distinct with aromas of peach, strawberry, and subtle hints of rose petal. Bursts of fresh citrus colorfully drive the palate and are balanced with flavors of nectarine and stone fruit. A silky entrance coupled with fresh and uplifting acidity leaves you with our signature coastal expressiveness.
WINEGROWING There is a great deal of beauty and expression to be found in the 2019 vintage. The growing season began with a cool winter and heavy rainfall, we even had snow on our estate! We already had cover crop coming up at this time so the snow really oxygenated soils and brought them to life. Spring was clear and bright with early bud break and cool sunny days. Summer followed with mild temperatures allowing moderate ripening and resulting in an eloquent and expressive vintage with superb fruit quality.
