Morgan 2019 Double L Vineyard Chardonnay
The grapes were picked when the flavor and acid balance was optimal, then hand-sorted and gently pressed to yield the highest quality juice. The juice was fermented in French oak – 31% new and a combination of one & two year old barrels. Full malo-lactic and lees stirring were conducted to obtain a medium+ body, balanced by fresh acidity.
Notes of pineapple, toffee, and toasted brioche are echoed on the palate by dried pear and baking spices. One of the finest food wines, the Double L Chardonnay will pair wonderfully with seafood and poultry dishes, but is rich and bold enough for meat dishes such as a buttery steak.
Lemon meringue, yuzu and apricot cobbler flavors are generous, intense and focused, with details of peppery white flowers and fresh citrus zest and ginger flavors on the long, juicy and expressive finish. Drink now.
