Notes from the Winemaker:
AVNI Chardonnay combines fruit from predominantly Nekia soils in Salem’s Bunker Hill, Eola-Amity Hills including Lingua Franca Estate, Yamhill-Carlton, with a small contribution from Laubejac Vineyard near Monmouth, in Willakenzie soils. The aroma is complex with layers of mineral, smoke, herbs. The wine is silky, racy and complex on the palate. A lasting finish of citrus, pear, and white flowers concludes with flinty, mouthwatering minerality.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points & #17 Top 100 of 2020 - Wine Enthusiast:
"This is a stunning wine and a sensational value. Succulent, tangy and concentrated in ripe fruit, it explodes with flavors of lemon, peach, apricot and papaya lifted by a squeeze of lime. Fermented in a mix of concrete and neutral barrels, it was then aged in new puncheons and neutral barriques." Paul Gregutt (12/1/2020)

92 Points - Vinous:
"Limpid yellow. Aromas of fresh pear, tangerine and jasmine and a dusty mineral nuance on the perfumed nose. Seamless and penetrating on the palate, displaying very good clarity to the mineral-tinged citrus and orchard fruit and sweet butter flavors. Closes with strong energy and a suggestion of Meyer lemon that adds final cut. " - Josh Raynolds (Sep 2020)
