Convey a sense of our place in the Willamette Valley. It seems like a simple mission. Knudsen Vineyard Brut approaches the task with a focus on Pinot Noir from one of Oregon's most historic vineyard sites to cast its richest, most extravagant expression in sparkling wine like no other winery can.

Planted in 1974, The traditional backbone Pinot Noir of the Knudsen Vineyard Brut sings of red berries and stone fruits with an underlying Jory clay minerality. Taut and sturdy, the cool, late 2010 growing season provides driving energy, structure and edginess. Underneath, the delicate complexity of barrel fermentation provides subtle warmth and depth. The finish lingers long and extensive, begging for char-grilled mussels, pancetta and crème fraîche.

Argyle Brut is always vintage-dated to capture what sparkles each year in the cool climate of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Argyle Vintage Brut is bottle-fermented, aged on-the-yeast and "disgorged on demand" in small batches to preserve vibrancy and freshness.

At the tip-top of Knudsen Vineyards, at nearly 950 feet of elevation, is where you'll find our small planting of Pinot Meunier. Being inherently lower in acid as compared to its partners in bubbly-crime, Pinot Meunier benefits form the extra advantage of late-season ripening to retain bright, fresh acidity and mineral edge. This year's blend is 30% Pinot Meunier and 70% Pinot Noir, allowing for true rose petal shimmer, whilst underneath, faint star anise, cardamom, and bay leaf linger. Clean and long, delicate and nimble, the creaminess is accentuated with food...smoked pork rillettes, marmalade & toast.

Talk about long hang time... the high elevation Knudsen Vineyard, Dijon Clone Chardonnay in the 2010 Blanc de Blancs wasn't harvested until October 18th, a full month behind our usual picking window! As a result, we see the strict interplay between vivid aromatics and steely, azor's edge minerality. Comice pear, faint pomelo, and fresh brioche seep calmly against the stern, edgy backbone. In order to tame that wild, late season acid and develop creamy texture, this Chardonnay was fermented entirely in our oldest neutral oak barrels and allowed to age on the lees. The tense, enlivening acidity and elegant mousse leave the salvaries coated with umami-like richness. I'm thinking Chelsea Gem oysters and a sandy beach.

This Oregon sparkling wine truly brings zest to life! The nose of lemon curd, raw honey, and almond biscotti harkens to the uplifting and refreshing palate to follow. With a fine mousse that buoys one up and flavors of Comice pear, custard, and marzipan that dance across your tongue, one cannot resist a grin as the effervescence slowly fades to a clean, minerally, citrus-toned finish. With the second sip, you’re guaranteed to be in an elevated state. Brut makes you better!
