Morgan Highland Chardonnay 2017

SKU 419



Winery Notes:

The grapes were hand picked and sorted in the vineyard. Whole cluster pressing

preserved the fruit flavors and natural acidity. We barrel fermented the wine in
29% new French oak, along with a combination of one and two year old and
neutral barrels. Partial malo-lactic fermentation ensured the wine a creamy
richness, balanced by bright acidity.

This focused, elegant Chardonnay’s aromas feature pear, clove, green apple, and
caramel. On the palate, aromas are complemented by a light touch of meyer lemon, graham cracker, and nutmeg. Incredibly food-friendly, the 2017 Highland Chardonnay is a perfect match for cream-sauced pastas, roast pork, and seafood.

Wine EnthusiastA strongly mineral kick of wet slate meets with apple peels, marmalade, toast and wool on the nose of this bottling. The palate is tense and taut with flavors of lime peel and kiwi, framed by a chalky minerality.
