About

92

The 2017 'Avni' Chardonnay is another absolutely gorgeous showing from Lingua Franca. It instantly impresses as it opens with bright lemon zest, kiwi and melon tones that connect all with the wet stone character on then nose. Displaying wonderful freshness and intensity with gobs of lip-smacking acidity that keep it fresh and inviting as flavors of bright citrus and orchard fruits parade with minerals on the palate. While this is nothing short of utterly delicious now, this brilliant Chardonnay should also evolve beautifully over the course of the next decade.

Product Description:

From the winemakers' website: 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. This is a remarkable wine with crab, lobster, clams, and oysters.
