Chardonnay at its best is a reflection of vineyard and winemaker. For this limited release, we went to one of the Highlands’ most experienced growers: Joe Alarid. Joe has been growing here long before the area was an official appellation, and is one of the S.L.H.’s most respected wine growers.

Originally planted in 1997, the Tondré Grapefield is one of the Santa Lucia Highlands’ premiere estates.  This is the third year Morgan Winery has sourced both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for Tondré Grapefield single vineyard wines. Tondré is located in the center of the Santa Lucia Highlands, just to the south of Soberanes and Garys’ Vineyards.

In the glass, Morgan’s Tondré Grapefield Chardonnay displays a beautiful light golden hue. Perfumes of lemon curd, gun flint, and butter toffee are supported by Meyer lemon and a hint of asian five spice on the palate. This is an elegant, layered Chardonnay with myriad food-pairing possibilities. It should be served at cellar temperature (not too cold) and will go well with flavorful seafood and poultry dishes. Medium term, proper cellaring will be rewarded.
