Lingua Franca, Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir Avni 2016 Oregon Red Wine 750 mL

$42.99 $38.69

Lingua Franca was inspired by an extraordinary vineyard site in the Eola-Amity Hills of the Willamette Valley. Our name represents a fine tradition of universal language, bringing people of different worlds to common ground – shared conversation, shared enjoyment.

Volcanic Eola-Amity Hills fruit sourced primarily from hillside vineyards in Hopewell.

Sorted on a vibrating table before being destemmed, the grapes, relatively intact after gentle destemming are fed bin by bin, not pumped, into the small format stainless steel fermenting tanks of between 2 to 5 tons capacity. A small amount of individual lots of grapes may be selected for partial whole cluster treatment. Fermentation begins with gentle pump overs and may in­clude one or two punch downs towards the end of the cu­vasion. The foulage and pigeage are done traditionally by foot. After fermentation, the wines age in a combination of 20% new and 80% old French oak barriques for 14 months prior to bottling.
