Morgan Double L Vineyard Chardonnay 2016
Winery: "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.
Our signature, single vineyard Chardonnay showcases the lush tropical fruit and minerality typical of its location and origin. Rich yet balanced, this limited release is pure Double L. The grapes were picked when the flavor and acid balance were optimal. Hand sorted grapes were gently pressed as whole clusters to yield the highest quality juice. The juice was fermented in French oak - 15% new and a com- bination of one & two year old barrels. 90% malo-lactic fermentation and lees stirring was conducted to obtain the trademark “Morgan Balance”: creaminess with bright, lush fruit complemented by structuring acidity and a creamy finish."
