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.
Visit us from 11:00AM to 5:00PM daily, except major holidays.
