2018 Domaine Serene, Côte Sud Vineyard Chardonnay, Dundee Hills, Oregon
The Côte Sud Vineyard is located on the south facing slope of the Evenstad Estate and ranges from 510 to 790 feet in elevation. Côte Sud is home to our oldest vines and planted to both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals, with the Chardonnay vineyard comprised of six-acres in Jory soil.
Texture is the heart and soul of the 2018 Côte Sud Vineyard Chardonnay. This extraordinary wine has a depth of richness and deep mouthfeel that separates this Chardonnay from others. On the palate, the rich concentrated texture blends with notes of stone fruit and fresh baked sourdough bread, creating an elegant acidity and exemplary structure balance that leads to a long and voluptuous finish.
