The fruit for this Morgan release is sourced from the Mission Ranch vineyard in the Arroyo Seco appellation. Located on the west side of the Salinas Valley, Arroyo Seco (meaning ‘dry river’) is uniquely characterized by an ancient riverbed surrounded by alluvial benchlands. Well-drained, stone-laden soil and cool coastal influence from nearby Monterey Bay yield grapes with concentrated flavor and balanced acidity.

Traditionally grown in Spain and Portugal, albarino has been gaining popularity in California as a refreshing, crisp, and fragrant “alternative” varietal.

The 2022 Albarino displays a beautiful straw color with aromas of white peach, honeysuckle, and banana. On the palate, these elements are joined by flavors of meyer lemon and underripe pineapple. This is a medium-light bodied white that’s delicious as an aperitif or paired with your favorite shellfish.

"Poached pear, gardenia and daffodil aromas greet the nose on this bottling. There’s pithy grip to the palate, with fresh and brisk wild apple flavors." - Matt Kettmann, November 2023

"Morgan has been working with the Albariño grape for a few vintages now, and I think the wine is starting to hit its stride in this vintage.  Sea spray and white flower aromas lead to a wildly bright palate of lemon, lime and wet stone that are rounded off slightly by four months in oak, where only a small percentage was new.  I love the spirit of adventure that is obviously being applied in this program.  Refreshing!" - Rich Cook, August 2023
