Winemaker's Notes:

The aroma displays a depth of fruit and spice. The fruit is up front and center with ripe citrus tangerine and Meyer lemon, integrated with lovely delicate Christmas spice. The flavor is a concentrated mouthful of tangerine peel, peach, embraced by that spice element. Rich juicy center of palate is equally matched by late season harvested mineral backbone. The finish is fresh with fruit, spice, and nice blossom honey. Made with 100% Rielsing grapes.

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.
