Chardonnay - Estate Vineyard - Sonoma Mountain - 2014


100% Chardonnay
Old-Wente, Hyde Selection
Fermented and aged 22 Months in new French oak
Full Malolactic Fermenatation

Our unbridled passion for Chardonnay is perfectly exemplified by the dramatic hillside where these vines reside. Cold, steep and sandy, in choosing such a challenging terroir to put down roots, it was this conscious commitment to quality, above all else, that defines our Estate Chardonnay bottling. Each year, the challenge of this terroir, coupled with extremely low yielding vines, mark the personality of Argot's estate grown Chardonnay a delicious and decadently flavored wine endowed with significant poise, polish and structure. Even in a 'bumper' crop vintage like 2014, the harvest yielded a meager 2.2 tons/acre.

Upon nosing the glass, the intense aromatics envelope the senses with citrus blossoms and stone fruit, accented by notes of an early morning patisserie bake. With each swirl and sniff the nose is presented with a different 'look' as this wine constantly evolves and becomes more complex. On the palate, luxurious textures anchored by natural freshness, deliver waves of citrus and stone fruits, caramelized orange rinds, lemon curd and key lime pie build towards a lingering finish that evokes hot-from-the-oven Danish butter cookies.
