2016 Lingua Franca Bunker Hill Chardonnay


$60.00 $44.99

Winemaker Notes:

BHV Chardonnay is exclusively from Salem’s Bunker Hill, with 20-year-old CH76 vines on pure Nekia soils at an altitude of around 800 feet. BHV, the only west facing vineyard we work with, is exposed directly to the cooling ocean winds of the Van Duzer corridor. The aroma is complex with layers of mineral, smoke, herbs. It has a distinctly lifted flavor and intensity. The wine is crunchy, racy and complex on the palate. A lasting finish of citrus, herbs, and white flowers concludes with flinty, mouthwatering minerality, that has intensity but floats on the tongue

Critical Acclaim:

“94 points.

“Sleek and seamlessly complex, featuring expressive floral lemongrass and steely mineral aromas and plush yet refined green apple and lemon flavors accented by spicy lees.” – Wine Spectator
