This reserve wine was made from Chardonnay grapes grown at Argyle’s three estate vineyards, two in the Eola-Amity Hills and one in the Dundee Hills, all within the Willamette Valley AVA. Once harvested, the fruit was gently pressed and allowed to age in mostly (85%) neutral French oak barrels for 16 months. The resulting Chardonnay is textured with nice acidity and a long finish.

Bouquet:

Lemons // hint of vanilla // crème brûlée // Asian pears // white flowers

Palate:

Meyer lemons // tart // lemongrass // ginger // nice weight // bright // Asian pears // lemon bars

Food pairing suggestions:

Crispy butternut squash and poblano tacos // steamed scallops with garlic // chicken adobo // spinach and ricotta tortellini with browned butter
