2020 is such an outstanding vintage for great Chardonnay from the Willamette Valley and Lingua Franca crafts it as well as anyone. Flinty aromas start you off on your journey, but quickly evolve into fresh sliced green apple, ripe yellow pear, dried pineapple, and nutmeg powder. The palate is incredibly rich, vibrant, and juicy with racy acidity and a finish that lasts for minutes. It’s incredibly balanced and has the stuff to keep for a decade or more.
