2018 Domaine Serene, Côte Sud Vineyard Pinot Noir, 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 Pinot Noir vineyard comprised of nearly 19-acres in Jory soil.
The 2018 Côte Sud Pinot Noir is evocative of an old soul with depth of minerality and complexity from the vines. The volume and concentration of fresh bounty excites the senses with bright notes of purple fruits, black plum and rose petals. An invigorating palate of luscious plum skin and candied cherries meet a deep and rich texture. With a beautiful round character, this exquisite wine finishes with a rich acidity and smooth elegance that makes it a hallmark of our Single Vineyard program.
