Mer Soleil Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands Silver Unoaked 2009
Citrus driven nose. Hints of matchstick, pineapple, banana and coconut. 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.
Very floral on the nose. It's a tad lacking on the palate though. Almost no fruit. It seems "nutty" and I pick up a distinct celery note. It's almost weird. Not really my cup of tea. It was better on the second day.

Mid-palate reveals ripe fruits such as lemons, gooseberry and grapefruit. Finishes dry while the acid comes and goes in a balanced fashion. Laser sharp minerality carries through from start to finish on both palate and aroma.

The wine opens with tropical fruit and honeysuckle aromas. Luxurious flavors of creme brulee and even a hint of butter are framed by notes of fine oak and the lively acidity of citrus zest. The mouth-feel is full and lush and brings all the wine's elements through to a long, persistent finish.
