Sold Out

As far as stereotypes go America is renowned for many things, but subtlety isn't one of them. A delicate duck confit seems pointless when you can be fed fried chicken from a bucket for a measly $10. Why try to decipher the nuance of a Jean-Luc Godard picture when you could watch Michael Bay replace plot structure with car explosions?


For some time, American wine had the same reputation; fully-loaded Cabs & super-sized Chardonnays dominated the market. However, wines such as Domaine de la Cote Sta Rita Hills undermine this stereotype.
An intense yet nuanced Pinot Noir, this Californian red offers classic rhubarb and cherry flavours; earth and game character; distinctly savoury on the palate with a long finish. With refreshing acidity and a lovely salty edge, this Pinot has the grace and subtly of a 60s French director. You're welcome to pair it with over-sized hamburgers though; it's dangerous to change too much too quickly.


Domaine de la Côte is a project in the Santa Rita Hills, born out of the Evening Land Vineyards. When Evening Land decided to back out of Southern California, they sold the vineyards to Sashi Mooman, its winemaker in Santa Rita, plus Sandhi’s Rajat Parr and a number of investors. A collection of 6 vineyards planted over 40 acres, their aim is to produce a Pinot Noir with distinct expression of terroir.
The Domaine farms its vineyards organically and makes its wines with the philosophy of ‘add nothing; take nothing away.’ All the wines are produced and bottled at the winery in the town of Lompoc in Santa Barbara County, three miles from the Domaine.
Their wines are helping to redefine how people think about Californian Pinot Noir.
