Winemaker Notes

Lone Star Vineyard has three separate blocks of Riesling totaling just under 7 acres of fruit, which amounts to less than 2% of our overall farming. Winemaking and blending is all about creating options and tools, so we have taken these three tiny blocks and cut them up into both stainless steel and neutral oak fermentations to give us more tools to play with. The stainless versions are left with a hint of residual sugar, which emphasize fresh, pure, round fruit while the neutral oak barrels are taken bone dry to bring the dichotomic elements of both mineral edge and subtle, creamy texture. The blending between these two styles across the three blocks of Riesling create an excitement and energy in the salvaries. Heavenly white nectarine, lime blossom, and silvery minerality. Break out the Costillas de Puerco!

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Lean and dry, this delicate white leads with scents of lemon and lees, a hint of clove spice lending complexity. But the wine’s raciness is the lasting impression, the tart Meyer lemon flavors holding a tension that lasts. Chill for red curry.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Light and sleek, with pretty pear, white peach and lime flavors that come together harmoniously, lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2023.

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.

Willamette Valley, Oregon

Running north to south, adjacent to the Willamette River, the Eola-Amity Hills AVA has shallow and well-drained soils created from ancient lava flows (called Jory), marine sediments, rocks and alluvial deposits. These soils force vine roots to dig deep, producing small grapes with great concentration.

Like in the McMinnville sub-AVA, cold Pacific air streams in via the Van Duzer Corridor and assists the maintenance of higher acidity in its grapes. This great concentration, combined with marked acidity, give the Eola-Amity Hills wines—namely Pinot noir—their distinct character. While the region covers 40,000 acres, no more than 1,400 acres are covered in vine.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
