Morgan 2019 "Metalico" Un-Oaked Chardonnay, Santa Lucia Highlands
Metallico is sourced from some of Monterey’s best vineyards. In 2019 we focused on Leavens and Double L, with a little fruit coming from Roger Rose. These vineyards are influenced by their proximity to the cold water of Monterey Bay, providing the perfect conditions for fruit forward, racy, and elegant Chardonnay.
Upon arriving at the winery, the grapes were whole-cluster pressed. After pressing, the juice was cold tank fermented, retaining the essential bright fruit and mineral characters. The wine was not allowed to go through a secondary malo-lactic fermentation.
