Argyle Chardonnay 2006
It has lovely Chardonnay aromas of apple blossom, pear and apple fruit, citrus with a hint of spice cake.
Argyle Chardonnay displays minerality, yet retains a juicy centered texture. The flavor includes all the above and is texturally rich, unctuous, and with a middle palate of pear tart. The finish is fresh and lengthy.
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.
