This fantastic Chardonnay from Domaine Serene is sourced from the Etoile Vineyard in the Dundee Hills and was aged for fourteen months in 43% new French oak prior to bottling. Bright on the nose, this delivers aromas of wild mushroom, ripe pear and cardamon with damp earth and flinty undertones. The palate is lithe, showing a wonderful sense of tension in this Chardonnay. Bright citrus oil and Pink Lady apple flavors mingle with minerals and peat moss accents. While this is absolutely delightful in its youth, it should also have at least a decade long drinking window ahead.
