2021 Lingua Franca Avni Pinot Noir

Add To Cart
Sold Out
The 2021 Avni Pinot Noir is subtle and mouth filling, immediately pleasing and rich. The large proportion of complexly flavored fruit from shallow Gelderman soils combines seamlessly with the richer fruit flavors of Pommard and 115 clone Pinot Noir on Jory and Nekia soils. The wine has many layers that unfold with both red and black cherry fruit, tea, rose petal, savory and mineral nuances, finishing with a round, plummy texture. 2021 Avni will count among the best we have ever made.
Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Over 70% of the fruit this vintage comes from the Lingua Franca Estate (30% upper blocks, 40% lower). The remaining 30% is sourced from our best neighboring vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills, including Hope Well, elevating the complexity while retaining the round, savory character of this cuvée.
Production Notes
Hand-harvested, the grapes were fed by bin into medium sized stainless steel and cement tanks and fermented spontaneously with 18% whole cluster fruit. The wines aged 16% new and 84% old French oak barriques for 12 months and 4 in tank prior to bottling. 9% of the total, Ponzi Heritage Pommard clone from LSV Block 23 was fermented using 100% whole cluster carbonic fermentation.
