Conscientiously farmed since the original plantings in 1997, today Morgan’s Double L Estate Vineyard is the only certified organic vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Located at the northern end of the AVA, the vineyard’s north-south row orientation provides optimal wind and sun exposure.

Clone 76 a “Dijon” clone of chardonnay valued for early ripening, smaller yields, and fruity tropical notes. Just over one acre of Clone 76 was hand-picked at the Double L, then hand-sorted at our winery. The gently pressed juice was fermented in 30% new French oak. Malolactic fermentation and lees stirring were conducted to obtain a medium body, balanced by fresh acidity.

Notes of lemon custard, gun flint, and sea spray are echoed on the palate by Nilla wafer, lemon pith, and sweet and savory spices. One of the finest food wines, the Double L Chardonnay Clone 76 will pair wonderfully with seafood and poultry dishes, as well as a buttery steak.
