Over the last decade, wineries have rushed fruit-forward, no-oak Chardonnays, and many of those wines have not hit the mark. Morgan Winery is one of the exceptions and has produced some of the best wines in this genre. The 2018 Metallico Un-oaked Chardonnay is a shining star. This wine is brimming with mineral, tart apple, and excellent brightness. Pair it with a dozen freshly-shucked raw oysters. (Tasted: August 19, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Slightly effervescent in the glass, this bottling is loaded with tropical fruit aromas of mango, papaya and tuberose, yet held back by touches of lime pith and chalk. The flavors zip across the palate, from Brie rind and ash to riper streaks of mango and jasmine.
