Winemaker Notes

In the glass, the 2018 Morgan Riesling displays a graceful, appealing nose of honeysuckle, jasmine, and green apple. Traditional Riesling flavors of key lime and lemon verbena work beautifully with the wine’s opulent aromatics. The wine’s slightly off-dry style and brisk acidity keep it balanced and fresh (much like a traditional German “Kabinett”).

This wine is a natural pairing for spicy Asian cuisine, shellfish, ripe cheeses, and crème brûlée.

Tasting Panel

Soft peach nose; crisp, sleek, and juicy with notes of tangy citrus and green apple. Dry, refreshing, and racy with pure favors and excellent balance.

COMMENTARY: While many wine experts scoff at the idea of a California Riesling, Morgan Winery has long understood the microclimates that can produce top-quality Riesling grapes. TASTING NOTES: This wine is fresh, bright, and alive. Its aromas and flavors of racy and Golden Delicious apples, with a hint of flowers, should pair well with a Chinese chicken salad with a touch of sesame oil and dried chili flakes. (Tasted: August 19, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

The Lee family started Morgan in 1982. Located in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey, the winery receives grapes from the family's organic vineyard, the Double L Vineyard, and a few select neighbors. The Double L is densely planted with 11 clones of Pinot Noir with rows oriented north-south for optimal sun exposure and interception of the cool breezes from the Monterey bay. This cool low yeilding area is becoming known as the "Cote d'Or of California" and produces wonderful Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Morgan also produces Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah from the various microclimates of Monterey.

Santa Lucia Highlands Wine

Monterey, California

View all products

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.

The climatic conditions here are perfectly suited to the production of ripe, rich Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. These Burgundian varieties dominate an overwhelming percentage of plantings, though growers have also found success with Syrah, Riesling and Pinot Gris.
