2019 Morgan "Double L Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Riesling (Previously $23)

SKU #1500782 90 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark I loved the 2019 Riesling Double L Vineyard, which offers classic lychee, lime, and green apple notes in a balanced, vibrant, incredibly juicy style. It should evolve for 5-7 years or so. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The Double L Vineyard is at the northern end of the Santa Lucia Highlands. Here the ultra-cool climate and porous, mountainside soils provide ideal conditions for growing world-class Riesling. Our Riesling grapes were foot stomped and left on the skins for 14 hours, then pressed. Freshness and bright fruit character were preserved by cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was arrested by quickly chilling down the tanks to achieve an off-dry style and low alcohol. In the glass, the 2019 Morgan Riesling displays a graceful, appealing nose of honeysuckle, white flowers, and meyer lemon. Traditional Riesling flavors of green apple and honeydew work beautifully with the wine’s opulent aromatics. The wine’s style starts with subtle sweetness then finishes bright and dry (much like a traditional German “Kabinett”). This wine is a natural pairing for spicy Asian cuisine, shellfish, ripe cheeses, and crème brûlée."
