Lingua Franca Chardonnay Avni Willamette Valley 2019

Excl. tax

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.
