2015 Nuthouse Chardonnay

Entirely from the Lone Star Vineyard, 2015 Nuthouse Chardonnay displays the richness and power of the Eola-Amity Hills, while still balancing along its fluid frame. Yellow peach, lemon pith, marzipan, and roast cashew flicker around dense, yet crystalline delicacy. Entirely barrel fermented, the wine was allowed to age elegantly on full lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 30% were new. The middle palate fills the mouth with weight and texture, while finishing with persistence and definition.

2014 Spirit Hill Vineyard Chardonnay

Our inaugural Chardonnay from Spirit Hill Vineyard balances focused concentration with tight, attacking energy provided by its cool and windy location. Sourced from a single block of the vineyard sitting at 750 feet elevation, it is always the last to be picked. Lemon peel, crunchy Bosc pear, and roast cashew nut are accentuated with persistent textural finesse. Entirely barrel fermented, the wine was allowed to age elegantly on full lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 40% were new.

2014 Argyle Chardonnay

Blended between our three vineyards, Argyle Chardonnay displays the concentration and power of the Eola-Amity Hills, with the lithe delicacy of the Dundee Hills. Fermented half in stainless steel and half in oak barrel, the wine is all bright fruit clarity and precision. Warmer than the previous vintage, and without the distraction of late September rains, the 2014 vintage has brought beautifully developed flavors. The middle palate is ripe with yellow pear and white peach, balanced with an underlying subtle, spicy creaminess. The natural acidity is buoyant and fresh, finishing long, clean, and pure.
