About The Producer
“Oregon’s best-known Champagne-method sparkling wine house.” –Lettie Teague, Wall Street Journal
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 re presented 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.
Grape / Blend
63% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay
Willamette Valley, Oregon
The wine is impressive for its depth and creamy layers of texture. Grilled plum, red cherry, honey, and orange rind are layered with the mature complexity of brioche and roast nuts, bringing harmony to a graceful and elegant finish.
92 Points - Vinous
Limpid yellow-gold. Fragrant citrus and orchard fruit aromas pick up hints of pomegranate, pungent flowers and succulent herbs with air. Silky and focused on the palate, offering spice-accented yellow apple, tangelo and sweet butter flavors and subtle chamomile and fennel nuances. Comes off younger than it is, showing solid closing thrust and repeating spice and floral notes. Disgorged in July 2018; 25% of the juice here went through malo. Drinking window: 2020 - 2025.
