2007 Extended Tirage Brut

With the sparkling harvest lasting 3 weeks and drawn out into early October, the 2007 Extended Tirage Brut is bursting with crunchy acidity and well developed fruit flavors. Aged upon the lees for 10 years before disgorgement, the wine is impressive for its depth and creamy layers of texture. Grilled peach, fig, honey, and citrus zest are layered with the mature complexity of toast and roasted nuts, bringing harmony to a graceful and elegant finish.

Vintage Notes

The 2007 growing season was picture perfect up until the end of September. Not too cold, and not too hot, usually makes Argyle a very happy winemaker. 2007 sparkling fruit had an amazing expression of ripe fruit flavor masked behind especially high natural acidity. This wine is testament to 20 years of balancing our farming to meet Mother Nature’s slings and arrows. The grapes are hand picked into small baskets. The fruit was first chilled to 35 degrees F before gentle, whole fruit pressing to extract just the “heart of the grape” juice from the berries. After settling the cold juice over a period of several weeks; clear, fresh juice was fermented using one of Argyle’s proprietary yeasts. A judicious amount of barrel and malo-lactic fermentation was employed to help build creamier textures and mouth rewarding complexities. Bottle aged on the yeast for ten years, our Extended Tirage Brut is disgorged on demand to ensure its appealing freshness.

2014 Argyle Vintage Brut

The 2014 sparkling wine vintage in the Willamette Valley was pristine, showcasing the enticing generosity and focused definition the region has to offer. The pinot noir dominated blend provides impressive red-fruited dimension to the ripe pear, fig and roast hazelnut. The middle palate is invigorated with dynamic acid backbone and edgy minerality, bringing balance and concentration to the long finish.

2013 Argyle Brut Rosé

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 Vineyards 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, strawberry hull, and lemon zest. The barrel aging of the red wine component contributes to its savory complexity, while its delicate, creamy bead leads to a long textural finish.

2013 Spirit Hill Vineyard Blanc de Blancs

Between 700-800 feet in elevation, north-facing and windy, the chardonnay from Spirit Hill Vineyard provides beautifully focused acidity and tension. The freshness of young Eola-Amity Hills chardonnay shines through with grapefruit and crisp cut apple accompanied by the complexity and depth of a warmer vintage building spicy, toasted notes. Neutral oak barrel fermentation and a small amount of malolactic fermentation build upon its pronounced structure, providing subtle cream and balance, while the driving acid continues through its long finish.
