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.

This year's Spirithouse Chardonnay comes from the graceful slopes of the Knudsen Vineyard. Sitting at 700 feet elevation, this block consists of some of Oregon's first high density plantings of Dijon Clone Chardonnay, while fully barrel fermented and malo-lactic finished to frame the taut acidity of the Dundee Hills. Finely poised and elegant, yet with an underlying bead of salty, mineral edge, it cries out for Oregon Dungeness Crab. The flinty, melon austerity is countered with supple, roasted cashew and creamy texture, while the length is pure, vibratious nervosity. Lay this baby down for 10-plus years.

Nuthouse Chardonnay is all about the interplay of savory texture and mineral edge. There is a satisfying and long lasting richness that is hard to define in words. A chord which travels from the back of the palate, through the spine and into the crust of the volcanic soil of the Willamette Valley. Fresh cut wheat, lemon sabayon, crêpes suzette, and delicate flake pastry. There is a degree of convection, the concerted, collective movement of groups or aggregates of molecules within this chardonnay, one may say the third dimension. It brings dreams of char-grilled crustaceans and blackened squid.100% barrel fermented.

Argyle Chardonnay is an exercise in purity. No bells or whistles, this is 100% Dijon clone, 100% stainless steel fermented chardonnay. Faint straw, almost green in color, the aromatics bring to mind rock melon, white tea, and Eureka lemon. The mid-palate is sleek with mouth-watering acidity and a deceptively silky texture. The richness is sneaky, waiting to be unlocked with, perhaps, pan-seared scallops, beurre blanc, shallots, black pepper.

Mouthwatering is the first descriptor that comes to mind. A nose of sweet white peach, orange blossom, and cool nectarine with an overlay of toasted hazelnuts, clove and allspice that is so fresh, pure and clean that it just fires up those salivary glands. It opens with a full mouth feel with notes of baked peach and toasted hazelnuts and delicious notes of honey and hints of graham cracker. The palate finishes with clean oak spice notes and a stony minerality that quenches and excites. Pour me another glass of that Nuthouse!
