An Oregon Meursault!
The aroma is complex with layers of mineral, citrus, and spice. On the palate, the wine is firm, vibrant, and racy with a long finish. Nuances of lemon peel, grapefruit, and a softer edge of pear and vanilla in the background.

Fruit for ‘Avni’ comes from volcanic soils in Oregon’s Eola-Amity Hills and is whole cluster pressed, fermented in puncheons/barriques, and aged for 11 months in oak. The final wine is loaded with flavors of lemon skin, honeycomb, pithy citrus, and baking spice.

Situated in the Eola-Amity Hills, the LS Vineyard was among the most coveted sites in the region before Larry Stone purchased the property in 2012 and planted it to 85% pinot noir and 15% chardonnay. Stone would then form a dream team of sorts, with the addition of consulting winemaker Dominique Lafon – of Domaine des Comte Lafon fame – and estate winemaker Thomas Savre – who cut his teeth at Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, Domaine Dujac, and Maison Nicolas Potel.
