Second-generation Winemaker Luisa Ponzi was one of the first to recognize the potential of Chardonnay in Oregon. For over 26 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 2017 vintage presents an opulent and beautifully balanced wine.
“Notes of white lavender, shortbread and vanilla poached pear mingle with lemon chiffon, chamomile, quince and white pepper frame this expressive nose. This generous mouth is fresh with tangerine citrus, cardamon spice and a mid-palate of pillowy soft richness.” –WINEMAKER LUISA PONZI
