2017 Domaine Serene, Côte Sud Vineyard Chardonnay 750ml
The Côte Sud Vineyard is located on the south-facing slope of the Evenstad Estate and ranges from 510 to 790 feet in elevation. This nearly six-acre Chardonnay vineyard is comprised of Jory soil and is our only site planted to both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals.
A distinctive brilliant gold in the glass, the 2017 Côte Sud Vineyard Chardonnay expresses a depth of complex aromatics with notes of cinnamon and ginger and undertones of fresh sage and mint. A clean minerality combined with a luxurious vanilla flavor coat the tongue, offering exquisite multi-layered sensations of freshness and creaminess. Elegant acidity and exemplary structure balance the roundness in the mouthfeel through to a long and sumptuous finish.
