2019 Domaine Serene, ‘Coeur Blanc’ White Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon
The 'Coeur Blanc' is a special and limited production white wine crafted from fully mature Pinot Noir grapes. At harvest, 100% estate-grown grapes from carefully selected vineyard blocks are handpicked and meticulously sorted. The grapes are then gently whole-cluster pressed, limiting contact with the grape skins so that only the “white heart” juice is expressed. The resulting juice is barrel fermented in French oak and then aged on the lees prior to bottling.
The 2019 release of our rare white pinot noir evokes white raspberry, sweet yogurt, and lemon-vanilla cream on the nose. Crisp apricot and toasted cream grow in intensity on the palate, marrying with a supple mouthfeel and wet stone minerality. The true unicorn of the Domaine Serene portfolio, the 2019 'Coeur Blanc' White Pinot Noir leaves a lingering impression with refreshing acidity.
