"A seductive style that captures effusively ripe peach and nectarine flavors. Features a juicy texture that's broad and layered. Despite using no oak, this leaves the impression of spicy, jazzy wood on the lingering finish. Drink now. 41,095 cases made." —J.L.

"A pale yellow hue, the wine is well balanced with great structure. Bright minerality, pink grapefruit and key lime characters shine through on the nose, followed by lemon zest and stone-fruit. The mid-palate displays intriguing notes of lemon meringue, quince and citrus, complemented by a crisp acidity that carries through from start to finish.

The higher acidity in this wine makes it a perfect accompaniment to a wide array of food, particularly salads, grilled seafood, tomato-based dishes and fresh oysters." ~Winemakers Notes

Mer Soleil Vineyard

View all from Mer Soleil Vineyard
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.
