2017 Morgan Chardonnay Double L Vineyard
2017 Morgan Chardonnay Double L Vineyard; Monterey, Central Coast, California
Winemaker Notes; Honey, graham cracker and squash aromas are echoed on the palate, framed by fresh acidity and a hint of salinity – a nod to Double L’s proximity to Monterey Bay. One of the finest food wines, the Double L Chardonnay will pair wonderfully with seafood and poultry dishes, as well as a buttery steak.
Perhaps the most highly regarded appellation within Monterey County, Santa Lucia Highlands AVA benefits from a combination of warm morning sunshine and brisk afternoon breezes, allowing grapes to ripen slowly and fully. The result is concentrated, flavorful wines that retain their natural acidity. Wineries here do not shy away from innovation, and place a high priority on sustainable viticultural practices.
Morgan Winery is family owned and operated since 1982. We craft artisan, terroir driven wines from the Santa Lucia Highlands and Monterey Bay, including our own organically farmed Double L Vineyard. Conscientious, innovative farming regimens allied with traditional, “minimalist” winemaking techniques craft wines of balance, elegance and distinction. For Morgan Winery, this single-minded focus has produced a record of consistent, category leading, award winning wines.
