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)

Santa Lucia Highlands Wine

Monterey, California

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.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
