2013 Domaine Serene Clos du Soleil Vineyard Dundee Hills Oregon Chardonnay

13.3% alc., 127 cases, $75. Estate grown, produced and bottled. This vineyard is one of seven estate vineyards. It consists of 4 acres that are dry-farmed and is close planted to Dijon clones in Jory soil at 650 to 700 feet elevation. Fermented and aged on the lees in French oak barrels. · Moderate golden yellow color and clear in the glass. The aromas of apple, baking spice, lemon curd and nut spread draw you into the glass. Fresh and possessing noticeable bounce, with a delicious blend of apple, pear and citrus flavors underpinned with steeliness and salinity. Beautifully balanced, clean and bright, with a refreshingly juicy finish. I like this wine for its freshness. It seems to call out, “Drink me!” Score: 93. Reviewed March 12, 2016 WINERY » ARTICLE »
