Morgen Long - Chardonnay Pink Label Willamette Valley 2021

A View from the Cellar: 93 Points

Seth Long’s 2021 Chardonnay “Pink Label” bottling is his lowest octane this year, coming in at 12.27 percent alcohol. The wine is composed of ninety-five percent chardonnay from X-Omni Vineyard, combined with five percent pinot noir lees from the Jessie James Vineyard to give the wine its very delicate pink color. X Omni Vineyard is densely-planted, but still fairly young, with the chardonnay vines having gone into the ground between 2014 and 2016. Half the cuvée was barrel-fermented in new oak and half in stainless steel, with the young wines racked to older oak and smaller stainless steel respectively once the malo was completed. The wine is beautifully precise and complex aromatically, wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, tangerine, a touch of strawberry, stony minerality, a hint of iodine, a very discreet framing of vanillin oak and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, fullish, complex and already drinking beautifully, with a lovely core, excellent backend lift and bounce, fine focus and a long, poised and vibrant finish. I have loved this unique bottling since I first tasted it and the 2021 Pink Label strikes me as the finest iteration yet of this superb cuvée.
