Dynamic, Diverse, Delicious: Morgen Long Chardonnays
Dear Willamette Valley wine fans,
There are couple handfuls of wineries who are driving the Willamette Valley Chardonnay discussion -- and who are making the most compelling and fantastic Chards. The discussion isn't complete without the inclusion of Seth Morgen Long, whose singular path is to focus exclusively on Chardonnay. His 2017 Chards are, from top to bottom, the most diverse and dynamic range of Willamette Valley Chardonnay available.
Morgen Long's gorgeous, tiny production Chardonnays each have their own unique voice, which makes them even more impressive. The individuality in each wine shows the gentle strength of Seth's winemaking style. In 2017, his production grew to include two fantastic values, Willamette Valley and Black Label, along with an exquisite Seven Springs and phenomenal White Label. We highly, highly encourage you to grab one of his Chardonnay samplers and to load up on his WV and Black Label values...and all of them! You'll find equal parts intellectual intrigue and pure delicious enjoyment. We adore them. Morgen Long 2017 Chardonnay Sampler

$29.65 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($32.95 regular)
An ambassador for Willamette Valley Chardonnay, representing Seth's whole program (minus the precious Eyrie). I adore the way it smells, moves, stretches. Mixed citrus, opal apple, a slice of peach, a drop of orange oil, woven together so strongly and completely. We have it on very good authority that it's the perfect match for salmon. Mostly Seven Springs, with Loubejac, Durant, AlexEli and Yamhill Vineyards. 12.5 barrels.
$53.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($59.95 regular)
Vivacity and freshness define the aromas and what comes next is a paradox of the right wines: dense, weighty and round yet with airiness and transparency. Floral, orange and sweet lime, ginger-spiced apple, a molten mineral finish. 3 barrels.
$62.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($69.95 regular)
A wonderfully complete wine with a beautiful interplay of honeyed and fresh. Meyer lemon, marzipan, white floral notes, creamy and superbly long and silky with depth and a cardamon cream note woven through its fabric. Tension and energy in the best ways. Mostly Seven Springs, with Loubejac and Yamhill Vineyards. 2.5 barrels.
Aromatically lovely,totally wowing complexity. Lemon pound cake, honeysuckle, flint, orchard fruits and orange-ginger custard. Chiseled from a block of Chardonnay gold, deftly weightless and profound. From legendary vines, some of the first Chardonnay planted in the Willamette Valley (1968). 1 barrel.
$107.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($119.95 regular)
Like sinking into the most comfortable pillow, purely awesome. A perfect waffle, lemon curd, mandarin orange, fresh pear, candied ginger, opulent and sexy with amazing textural richness, spice-framed, remaining fresh and bright. 2 barrels.
I imagine my wines are liquid almanacs, transparent & illustrative. - Seth Morgen Long
