The fruit for this Morgan release is sourced from the Mission Ranch vineyard in the Arroyo Seco AVA. Here daytime temperatures reach the mid to upper 80’s, but are mitigated by fog and wind drawn south from Monterey Bay. The moderate days and cool evenings extend the growing season, resulting in fruit of superior flavor and balance.

Traditionally grown in Spain and Portugal, Albarino has been gaining in popularity in California as a refreshing, crisp, and fragrant “alternative” varietal. The grapes were hand-picked and whole cluster pressed to stainless steel tanks for a cool fermentation, retaining freshness and bright fruit flavors. After fermentation, the wine was barrel aged for five months in French and Hungarian oak, of which 16% was new.

The 2020 Albarino displays a beautiful straw color with aromas of lemon blossom followed by hints of green apple and green mango. On the palate, these elements are joined by flavors of citrus and subtle toast. This is a medium-light bodied white that’s delicious as an aperitif or paired with your favorite fresh shellfish.

91 Points
"An interesting take on Albarino with the wine being aged for five months in French and Hungarian oak, with 16% of the barrels being new. Displaying a beautiful light lemon color in the glass and producing aromas of ripe green apple, dried pineapple, dried herbs and hazelnut, this wine finishes with a savory and herbaceous way on the back palate that complements the high acidity and medium body." - Jeremy Young, January 2022



90 Points
"Fairly bold aromas of plumeria, jasmine and peach jam are fresh and likable on the nose of this bottling. That peachy aspect takes hold of the palate, where a citrus-driven acidity and light stone minerality cut through the finish."
- Matt Kettmann, May 2022
