Winemaker's Notes:

This Nuthouse Chardonnay made from Dijon clone fruit grown primarily at a low elevation vineyard on a Dundee Hill southern slope, ensures big fruit ripeness even in cooler vintages. The aroma is of melon fruit while the flavor is unctuous, viscous and of very sweet fruit. The finish is huge and long, of fruit and vanilla bean.

About Argyle:

Twenty-five years ago, Argyle began making wine in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Since 1987, winemaker Rollin Soles and viticulturist Allen Holstein have teamed up to produce world-class method champenoise sparkling wines, barrel-fermented Chardonnay, and silky-textured Pinor Noir from low-yielding vines that are winery farmed on some of the best hillside slopes and elevations. Argyle wines have received a total of 11 Wine Spectator Top 100 designations - more than any other winery in Oregon. The Argyle wines represented on this list include sparkling wine, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, truly making Argyle one of the finest practitioners of the craft of elegant, long-lived winegrowing.
