2019 Morgen Long X Omni Chardonnay
"(Chardonnay “X-Omni Vineyard”- Morgen Long Wine (Eola-Amity Hills)) The X-Omni Vineyard is densely planted with fifteen different clones of chardonnay. The grapes for this bottling were picked on October 1st and 7th in 2019, with the wine starting out fermentation in stainless steel and being racked into cask to finish. The wine ended up being raised in forty-five percent new oak this year and tips the scales at 12.85 percent octane. The bouquet is precise and simply beautiful already, wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, white peach, almond, a complex base of soil tones, lemon blossoms, just a whisper of iodine and a lovely framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is vibrant, full-bodied, intensely flavored and very complex, with a beautiful girdle of acidity, superb focus and grip and a long, zesty and very, very classy finish. This is young and a bit reductive out of the blocks, so I would definitely tuck it away in the cellar and let it blossom. This is a great new addition to Seth Long’s lineup of single vineyard bottlings! (Drink between 2024-2050)" 95+ points - JG
