Bottle of Lavinea Chardonnay

Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay

Eola-Amity Hills AVA

Aged 10 months in first and second fill French oak, the aromas offer notes of toast, passion fruit, and kiwi, in some respects more reminiscent of a Pinot Gris than Chardonnay. Medium-bodied sharply-etched citrus and tropical fruit flavors follow. Lively acidity and mineral notes run throughout. It’s a fascinating offering of the variety, drinking best on the warmer end of the 55-60 degree scale. Pair it with grilled halibut that’s topped with a lemon beurre blanc. Critics Choice & 92 points Sean Sullivan, Northwest Wine Report More Details >

Bottle of Lavinea Elton Vineyard Chardonnay

Elton Vineyard Chardonnay

Eola-Amity Hills AVA

Spritely and vibrant, the 2021 Chardonnay Elton Vineyard comes from vines planted in 1993 and pours a bright medium straw hue. Lifted notes of lemon-lime citrus zest, crushed stones, and green apple are followed by a focused white with a balanced, ripe core within a linear and medium frame. Rounded with a delicate lacy and custardy texture and fresh notes of salted citrus lift on the finish, it’s attractive now but will be great to hold on to and drink over the coming 10 years. 95 points Audrey Frick, JebDunnuck.com More Details >

Temperance Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir

Eola-Amity Hills AVA

From a certified organic, high-quality site, the absolutely stunning 2021 Pinot Noir Temperance Hill Vineyard pours a deeper jeweled ruby with purple tinge.

Medium to full-bodied, with a weightless feel and a velvety texture, it offers pillowy tannins and fresh balanced acidity. This exceptional and harmonious red is a fantastic counterpoint to the Tualatin Estate Vineyard bottling. Bravo. 99 points Audrey Frick, JebDunnuck.com More Details >

Bottle of Lavinea Nysa Vineyard Pinot Noir

Nysa Vineyard Pinot Noir

Dundee Hills AVA

Once again, I was struck by the poise and focus of lsabelle Meunier’s Pinot Noirs. Her wines are built to age but are not forbidding nor strict.
