Argyle, Blanc de Blancs, Knudsen Vineyard, Julia Lee’s Block, Dundee Hills AVA, Oregon, 2009, 12.5% abv.

Argyle 1Brut makes you better‘ is the claim on the Argyle Winery website. Agreed!  We were there in 2010 and purchased this with that goal in mind.

Very pale lemon with a persistent, chubby bubble, this sparkler has a very light nose of yeast, lemon zest and Granny Smith apple.

Dry but not austere, the wine has refreshing medium plus acidity and medium minus alcohol with mild flavours of Golden Delicious and green apples, Asian pear, more light citrus zest with lemon meringue and toast.  The finish has average length and some light citrus rind bitterness on the very end.

Delicate and light, it’s a simple but clean and tasty sparkling wine.

WSET Good – don’t lay down, enjoy now.
