Lingua Franca Avni Chardonnay
Avni Chardonnay combines fruit from predominantly shallow, volcanic vineyard sites in the Eola-Amity Hills and their Bunker Hill Estate. A small portion of the grapes come from sites located in the Van Duzer Corridor and Chehalem Mountains, which are grown on marine sediments and Yamhill-Carlton. The predominant clone is Chardonnay, which has a crisp acidity and reflects mineral qualities from the soil.
REGIONWillamette Valley, USA
TASTING NOTESThe aroma is complex with layers of lemongrass, honeycomb, citrus and spice. On the palate, the wine is silky, round and supple, with a long finish.
FOOD PAIRINGThis is a remarkable wine with crab, lobster, clams, oysters and ceviche. It also pairs well served slightly warmer with trout or salmon in a lemon or lemon-dill sauce or with roasted chicken with herbs, garlic and lemon.
