Flanagan 3 Star Chardonnay 2012


SKU 24065


Our 2012 Flanagan Russian River Valley Chardonnay is a beautiful wine from a perfect vintage. The texture of the wine is one of the defining attributes...it is exactly what we strive for in our Chardonnay. The 2012 vintage was very generous. With good set, a long sunny growing season, no heat spike, and no late rains, we got to pick exactly when we wanted to. We wish every year was just like this one! Our 2012 Flanagan Chardonnay captures the balance we look to create in our wines. The nose reveals honeysuckle, and jasmine. The palate displays peach dominated stone fruits balanced by a nuance of vanilla and butterscotch liqueur. Barrel aging on lees in French oak (60% new) augments the rich textural profile that is the hallmark of our Chardonnay.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Chardonnay Three Stars Vineyard exhibits orange blossom, white currant and honeysuckle characteristics in its medium-bodied, clean, fresh, ripe personality. There is a slight greenish hue to the color, and I loved the wine's density and richness. Flavorful and full, this sleeper of the vintage should drink well for 3-4 years.
