2021 Lingua Franca Avni Chardonnay

Add To Cart
Sold Out
The aroma is complex with layers of mineral, citrus, white flowers and gunflint. On the palate the wine is balanced, vibrant and racy with a long finish. The natural acidity of the region is rounded by labor-intensive barrel fermentation and aging. Avni 2021 has nuances of lemon peel, green apple, fresh herbs, and a softer edge of pear and vanilla blossom in the background.
Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Avni 2021 Chardonnay is sourced from multiple vineyards in the region with a majority of the fruit from shallow volcanic soils including the Lingua Franca Estate Vineyards of LSV and Bunker Hill, as well as from choice volcanic vineyards in the Chehalem Mountains and Yamhill-Carlton, with additional fruit from a unique site in the Van Duzer Corridor in old marine sediments.
Production Notes
Whole cluster pressed, settled in tank for 24 hours on average, barrel fermented and then aged in a combination of 21% new, 600-liter puncheons, 16% in large wooden cask and 63% old French oak barriques, then left to age for 11 months sur lie. Fermentation was spontaneous with wild yeast. Full malolactic fermentation was completed in each vessel and then the wines were put back in tank with their lees for six months prior to bottling.
