2014 Spirithouse Chardonnay

2014 Spirithouse Chardonnay

Spirithouse Chardonnay is Argyle at its rarified best. This single-source, Dijon clone Chardonnay is the nexus between Argyle's most cutting edge viticulture and most exacting winemaking. Spirithouse is Argyle's purest expression of power and grace.


Entirely from Knudsen Vineyard, 2014 Spirithouse Chardonnay displays the delicacy and refinement of the Dundee Hills while brandishing its focused acidity. Grilled peach, lemon zest, and toasted brioche are framed around dense, yet lucid intricacy. Built for long term ageability, the parcels were entirely barrel fermented and allowed to age gracefully on full lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 40% were new. The middle palate fills the mouth with strength and creamy texture while finishing with exacting length.

Offering subtle peaches and cream notes on the nose with underlying hints of honeysuckle, allspice and crushed stones, the medium-bodied 2014 Chardonnay Spirithouse is delicately crafted and minerally on the palate, with appealing freshness and a long chalky finish. —August 31, 2017

Tasting 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.
