2015 Spirithouse Chardonnay

Entirely from Knudsen Vineyard, 2015 Spirithouse Chardonnay displays the delicacy and refinement of the Dundee Hills with sleek depth and mouth embracing minerality. White peach, preserved lemon, and roast cashew are framed around a silky, persistent finish. Built for long term ageability, the wine was entirely barrel fermented and allowed to age gracefully on full lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 40% were new.

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.

2015 Argyle Chardonnay

Blended between our three vineyards (Knudsen Vineyard, Lone Star Vineyard and Spirit Hill Vineyard), Argyle Chardonnay displays the concentration and power of the Eola-Amity Hills, with the lithe delicacy of the Dundee Hills. Fermented in stainless steel and French oak barrels, the wine is all bright fruit clarity and precision. In order to capture freshness and vibrancy in a warmer growing season, one third of the blend was blocked from undergoing malolactic fermentation, providing tension and vibration. The middle palate is energetic crunchy lemon and white peach, balanced with an underlying subtle, spicy creaminess. The natural acidity is buoyant and fresh, finishing long, clean, and pure.
