Lingua Franca Avni Chardonnay 2016

Willamette Valley, Oregon, United StatesIn the case of the AVNI Chardonnay, a Stone family name that means “my stone” or “mother earth,” it’s grown on 100% Jory soils in Dundee’s Durant and Willamette Valley Vineyards in Salem, Willakenzie vineyard in Yamhill-Carlton, with a contribution from Loubejac vineyard fruit near Monmouth, in Willakenzie and Dupee soils. The nose is subtle, the palate racy with silky textures and an alluring complexity. In a sense big, but light on its feet through its mix of delicate pear and citrus with a stony, mineral, floral finish. Drink or hold.Tasted: 02 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 69.00 private wine shops QC 52.25 SAQ US 37.00 srp Producer: Lingua FrancaDistributors: Revelry Import Company
