Flanagan Wines was born out of proprietor Eric Flanagan's love for wine. He visited wine growing regions around the world from New Zealand to Greece and was fascinated by how the same grape varietals produced different styles of wine within different climates. This led to an interest in great vineyard sites and a focus on the soils and the climate that made each unique. In 1999 he chose to act on his interest by purchasing 40 acres on the heights of Bennett Mountain and planting his first vineyard.
The chardonnay shows aromatics of slate, ripe citrus fruit and just a touch of oak. The palate is bright showcasing the aromatics with a good pop of acidity.
