2021 Double L Dry Riesling
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.
Our riesling grapes were foot stomped and left to macerate overnight, then the juice was cold settled after gentle pressing. Bright fruit character was preserved by cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was allowed to finish, achieving this dry style.
In the glass, the 2021 Double L Dry Riesling displays a graceful, appealing nose of chamomile, white peach, and apple blossom. Traditional riesling flavors of green apple and key lime work beautifully with the wine’s opulent aromatics. Bright acidity makes this bone-dry riesling a good pairing for oysters, summer salads, and soft, creamy cheeses.
