Tasting notes

Blended between our three vineyards, Argyle Chardonnay displays the concentration and power of the Eola-Amity Hills, with the lithe delicacy of the Dundee Hills.

Vintage Notes

The 2014 growing season began with plenty of sunshine and warmth throughout the Spring. About two weeks ahead of normal, the early June bloom continued with fantastic weather, leading to an above average fruit set. This required us to meticulously thin our vineyards in order to capture dense, vibrant fruit flavors. The summer was quite warm, seeing a near record number of 90º+ days. The Pinot Noir harvest started in the Dundee Hills on September 10th and finished nearly one month later in the upper elevations of the Eola-Amity Hills on October 7th
