2018 Domaine Serene, ‘Evenstad Reserve’ Chardonnay, Dundee Hills, Oregon
The 'Evenstad Reserve' Chardonnay represents the art of blending select barrels from our estate vineyard sites in the Dundee Hills. Our belief is that the combination of Dijon clone vines, Jory soil and the high elevation of our Dundee Hills estates gives us fruit of unparalleled quality for this reserve wine.
The 2018 vintage of this acclaimed wine perfectly showcases the best of each vineyard that goes into the compelling blend. An enticing tropical medley of kiwi and yellow peach act as the melody, with high notes of white flower and fresh linen. The oak treatment is flawlessly integrated, with a lingering minerality and salinity completing the symphony. This wine will certainly deserve a place in the cellar of the discerning collector of fine Chardonnays.
