Winemaker Notes

Grilled peach, wild honey, suggestions of nougat and roast almonds are framed around dense, yet crystalline delicacy. Warmer than the previous vintage, and without the distraction of late September rains, the 2014 vintage has brought beautifully ripe flavors. Entirely barrel-fermented, the wine was allowed to age elegantly on full lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 40% was new. The middle palate fills the mouth with strength and texture, while finishing with long, caressing, silky vibration.

Certified sustainable (LIVE & Salmon-Safe)

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Tangy and fresh, with a pleasing salinity framing lemon and apple flavors, this nimble white has a generous middle with a leesiness that creeps into the finish like a fog. A nimble white to pair with lemon chicken.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Light, bright and refreshing, with grapefruit, pear and floral flavors on a polished frame, lingering on the sleek finish. Drink now through 2019.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Chardonnay Nuthouse is a blend of Argyle's three sites at low and high elevations, barrel fermented and aged for 12 months (25% new wood). The nose is well defined but needs coaxing from the glass, eventually revealing walnut and undergrowth scents. The palate is crisp on the entry with a fine bead of acidity, hints of brioche and grapefruit here with a well-composed and tensile finish armed with a pleasant bitter edge. This is certainly worth looking out for.

Argyle Lone Star Vineyard Winery Image

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.

One of Pinot Noir’s most successful New World outposts, the Willamette Valley is the largest and most important AVA in Oregon. With a continental climate moderated by the influence of the Pacific Ocean, it is perfect for cool-climate viticulture and the production of elegant wines.

Mountain ranges bordering three sides of the valley, particularly the Chehalem Mountains, provide the option for higher-elevation vineyard sites.

The valley's three prominent soil types (volcanic, sedimentary and silty, loess) make it unique and create significant differences in wine styles among its vineyards and sub-AVAs. The iron-rich, basalt-based, Jory volcanic soils found commonly in the Dundee Hills are rich in clay and hold water well; the chalky, sedimentary soils of Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville encourage complex root systems as vines struggle to search for water and minerals. In the most southern stretch of the Willamette, the Eola-Amity Hills sub-AVA soils are mixed, shallow and well-drained. The Hills' close proximity to the Van Duzer Corridor (which became its own appellation as of 2019) also creates grapes with great concentration and firm acidity, leading to wines that perfectly express both power and grace.

Though Pinot noir enjoys the limelight here, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc and Chardonnay also thrive in the Willamette. Increasing curiosity has risen recently in the potential of others like Grüner Veltliner, Chenin blanc and Gamay.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
