Winemaker Notes

At the top of Lone Star Vineyard, planted to high density on devigorated rootstock, this Riesling soaks up the generous Eola-Amity Hills morning sunshine. Upon harvesting, the grapes were chilled overnight, de-stemmed, and then put back into the cold room to soak on their skins for 48 hours before pressing. It underwent cool, slow stainless steel fermentation and aging for the first half of its life, then it was transferred down to neutral wood to further age for a total of 14 months. White flowers, lemon blossom, and subtle creamy spice glide into a long, silky textured finish. Break out the Haemul Pajeon!

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Multiple picks from two Eola–Amity Hills vineyards give this wine an impressive breadth of expression. Its aromas flirt with lemon-lime while the flavors are broader and deeper, hinting at roasted apple, and the wine’s dusty texture lasts, with a grainy minerality that calls for pork.
JS 92
James Suckling
This has an attractive, fresh and silky feel with a very smooth, vibrant and lively set of red-fruit aromas on offer. The palate has a fresh and quite detailed core of red cherries with neatly groomed tannins. Drink or hold.

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.

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.
