In the Wine Enthusiast that just came out, this earned a 95-point score at $30:
There's a compelling combination of precision and depth on this bottling. Aromas of lemon glaze, thinly sliced Asian pear and crushed oyster shell lead into an acid-driven palate, where rounded flavors of pear, honeysuckle and celery cling to a firm, exciting structure.
Not only the top Morgan Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay ever – this is their top 2021 Chardonnay from the Santa Lucia Highlands period.
What we especially love here is the combination of richness, depth and complexity with a very healthy pH of only 3.27. Which is of course what the Santa Lucia Highlands is all about.
