Second-generation Winemaker Luisa Ponzi was one of the first to recognize the potential of Chardonnay in Oregon. For over 25 years she has been perfecting her distinct style which comes through brilliantly in this limited bottling from our Avellana Vineyard. Planted to perfectly matched clones on Laurelwood soil, the 2015 vintage presents an opulent and beautifully balanced wine.
"This floral nose of magnolia, white jasmine and lemon blossom leads to hints of peach and lemongrass. The palate is bright with flavors of lemon custard, candied ginger and a caramel undertone. A salty minerality, like crushed oyster shells, leaves the finish fresh with brilliant acidity."
