Lingua Franca AVNI Chardonnay 2016
Chardonnay from Larry Stone’s new project in Willamette Valley, Oregon
Lingua Franca vineyards sit adjacent to two iconic vineyard sites in the Eola-Amity Hills, Seven Springs and Lone Star Vineyard. The site is rich in unique characteristics that lend these wines their beauty (rich in Jory, Jory-Geldermann and Nekia soil).
“Refined and gracefully complex, with precise and vibrant Meyer lemon, river stone and apricot flavors that glide on a long finish.” - WS, 93 pts.
This is a special Chardonnay that is garnering amazing attention in the wine world for its amazing balance and complexity.
"Avni means 'stone' or 'rock' and is a signature of our local geology and soils. The basalt rocks of the Willamette Valley feature in the mineral flavors and savory quality of this wine." - Larry Stone
