Since our founding in 1987, we have been dedicated to the development of traditional, age-worthy, collectible sparkling wine. Brut Rosé has been part of that story from the very beginning - in fact our very first vintage.
We continue that history with the release of our 2012 vintage - now available online and at our Tasting House.
At the top of Knudsen Vineyards in the Dundee Hills, at 950 feet of elevation, is where you'll find our 2.5 acre planting of Pinot Meunier. We take advantage of the late ripening spot to retain bright, fresh acidity and mineral edge. The balance of the wine is equally blended between the aforementioned Knudsen Vineyard and our younger, but equally high elevation Spirit Hill Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills.
The color is bright, pale salmon pink, while its bouquet is full of rose petal, cherry kernel, and pomegranate. The barrel aging of the red wine component contributes to its savory complexity, while its delicate, creamy bead leads to a long textural finish.
This could just be the perfect spring sparkling wine.
For the past 9 years, we have been proud to partner with Portland Center Stage, bringing stories to life. May 14-June 19, Argyle sponsors A Streetcar Named Desire. More info and tickets.
