Domaine Serene Evenstad Reserve Dundee Hills Chardonnay 2016

$64.99

Domaine Serene  is one of Oregon's best wineries and their Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays Evenstad Reserve are the cream of the crop. Oregon Chardonnay at it's finest! 95 Points "Editor's Choice" Wine Enthusiast: "This is one of the finest Evenstad Reserves to date, bringing a stunningly good mix of tree fruits nuanced by barrel flavors of butterscotch and toasted hazelnut. It all leads into a sappy, cinnamon-inflected finish that lingers gracefully and promises to age well through 2025." 92 Points Robert Parker: "The 2016 Chardonnay Evenstad Reserve opens with a great streak of petrichor over fresh yellow apple and Bosc pear notes with accents of hay, crème fraîche and toast. Medium to full-bodied and creamy textured in the mouth, it gives up toasty flavors with a great core of concentrated, ripe fruit and juicy, mouthwatering acidity, finishing long and minerally."

Clean yet rich. Want to lay down a couple and try again but I’ll probably drink them all.

Known for their outstanding Pinot Noir’s, this Chard is a “must try” from OR. Aromas of stone and tropical fruits, with elegant floral notes, barrel fermented for 14 months, 30% new French oak. On the palate rich flavors of apple and pear, complex, vivid acidity with a citrus presence. Smooth and soft, lingering, great mouthfeel ending with a lemon mineral character. Good now but you can set this beauty down for a few years.

A touch oak more than expected but not over the top. White peach and hint spice like cinnamon.

In my experience gifting wine in the corporate world is quite common. Fortunately for me one of our managing directors at the office knows I’m “the wine guy” so, whenever I see her name pop up on my caller-ID, I know I’ve got a bottle coming my way. Sure enough a client sent her this beautiful Chardonnay from Domaine Serene and boy, I’m really liking it. Bright minerality, lemon custard, lemon meringue, sugary fondant, saline, tangerine, caramelized sugar and a whiff of smoke. Pretty mouthfeel with a nice viscosity that gives it some heft, yet there’s a good amount of balance here that exudes a youthful, eager poise bent on growth.
