Entirely from the Lone Star Vineyard, 2015 Nuthouse Chardonnay displays the richness and power of the Eola-Amity Hills, while still balancing along its fluid frame. Yellow peach, lemon pith, marzipan, and roast cashew flicker around dense, yet crystalline delicacy. Entirely barrel fermented, the wine was allowed to age elegantly on full lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 30% were new. The middle palate fills the mouth with weight and texture, while finishing with persistence and definition.

Wine EnthusiastRicher and oakier than the regular Argyle Chardonnay, this conveys flavors of Honey Crisp apple, framed with a palate-pleasing toastiness. It's balanced and already drinking in a prime window. Enjoy it now through 2020.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chardonnay Nuthouse has toasty, oaky notes to begin, opening out to Golden Delicious apple, crème fraîche and lemon pith. Light to medium-bodied, it features Greek yogurt and fleshy orchard fruits in the mouth with lots of toasty, oaky notes and refreshing acidity, dropping off a bit on the finish. 600 cases produced.
