Argyle Chardonnay Nuthouse 2008
Oily nose with wood notes - the attack is gently acidic, and expands on the tongue into a midpalate of apples and tropical fruit acidity. Dry finish.
From Argyle: Our good friends in Burgundy are always excited when they can get the elusive aroma and flavor of toasted hazelnuts in their Chardonnays. In this example of the Nuthouse Chardonnay we have captured just that. Those hazelnuts are complimented by a toasted marshmallow, ripe cantaloupe, and Bosc pear on the nose. Look for the ripe white peach, melon and a generous splash of fresh nutmeg and clove oak spice. The wine finishes with a long cut pear and mineral thread that is so indicative of the cool climate in which it was grown.
