2018 Domaine Serene, Winery Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills, Oregon
Known as our “greeting vineyard,” Winery Hill Vineyard welcomes guests as they arrive at our Dundee Hills Clubhouse. This high-elevation Pinot Noir vineyard is planted solely to Dijon clones, allowing the grapes to gradually ripen, resulting in full flavor development and highly complex fruit. The wine offers excellent aging potential, with balanced acidity, elegant tannins, and a lingering finish.
The 2018 vintage showcases a fragrant nose of strawberry pie and orange peel, revealing bright cherries, orange zest, and an array of holiday spices from anise to sage on the palate. A soft, mouthwatering minerality marries a lively acidity cloaking the senses with a long, lingering finish.
