"Citrus driven nose with hints of pineapple, banana and coconut cream pie. Soft and round entry. Oak is apparent, but not defining. Mid-palate goes on to reveal other layers of flavors vanilla, lemon meringue pie and again coconut. Finish is rich with viscosity that coats the mouth for minutes after your last sip. Enjoy slightly chilled." ~ Winery notes

Mer Soleil and Silver Chardonnays are both products of the same fruit from the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey County. The difference between the two Chardonnays is the fermentation process. Mer Soleil is fermented in French oak barrels chosen from an array of coopers, while Silver never sees the inside of a barrel. Winemaker, Charlie Wagner, uses modern fermentation and aging methods utilizing both stainless steel and cement tanks for Silver unoaked Chardonnay.
