Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 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. The wine has an open texture and deeper flavor, reflecting the even growing conditions throughout the season. The finish is long and mouthwatering.
Vineyard Notes
AVNI Chardonnay 2017 combines fruit from predominantly volcanic soils in the Eola-Amity Hills including grapes from Yamhill-Carlton, and some fruit from the Chehalem Mountains on marine sediments.
Production Notes
The grapes were picked to maximize freshness and tension in the finished wine. Whole cluster pressed, settled in tank for 24 hours on average, barrel fermented in a combination of 27% new, 600 liter puncheons and 73% old French oak barriques from diverse coopers and left to age for 11 months. Full malolactic fermentation completed in each vessel and then the wines were put back in tank with their lees for five months prior to bottling. The acidity is natural.
Food Pairing Notes
This is a remarkable wine with crab, lobster, clams, and oysters.
