This smells very ripe and tropical with pineapple and mango aromas. This delivers a mouthful of relatively soft if intensely pineapple and mango flavored wine. It's round and easy going with a short finish. 82pts

Somewhat on the citrus fruit side of chardonnay but not the crisp, minerally style, kind of in between with some oak but not buttery, fruit but more citrus than apple.

according to Elin McCoy article http://www.zesterdaily.com/drinking/1317-2010-mer-soleil-silver-chardonnay-wine-review "This lemony 2010 Mer Soleil Silver Chardonnay from California's Santa Lucia Highlands is pure and crisp, with weight and richness but without the telltale vanilla notes of new oak aging."

    This elegant Chardonnay sees no oak contact whatsoever. None. Zippo. Nada. Instead, it displays a Chablis-like minerality driven by green apple and citrus notes and a powerful mouthfeel. Sleek and refined, the body is crisp and the finish provides a jolt of acidity. If yoursquo;re wondering about the ceramic bottle, it is meant to evoke the cement tanks used during fermentation, but wersquo;ve heard it also doubles as a nice vase for flowers. Once the wine is gone, of course.

    Zesty, with racy, mouthwatering citrus, pineapple and green apple fruit thatrsquo;s pure and focused. Ends with lively acidity. Drink now through 2016.

    Color of light straw. Vivid aromas display baking spice, butterscotch and and freshly-cut hay. Light viscosity and mild acidity wrap around a palate accented by Chablis-like texture with a hint of stone and mineral, while the back palate is elegant,... Jim Collins.

    Mineral driven nose with with citrus shining through. Cemnet tank fermentation and aging bring out aromas remindful of the first rain of the season or a wet rock. Soft and round entry with an acid backbone informs you these grapes are grown in a cooler climate. Mid palate reveals ripe fruits such as lemons, gooseberry, and grapefruit. Finishes dry while the acid comes and goes in a balanced fashion. Laster sharp minerality carries through from start to finish on both palate and aroma.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Light gold color with a pale green tint. Clean, lively aromas of honeydew melon and green apple carry over to delicate tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and papaya, balanced with crisp mineral notes. The full texture lasts through a luxuriously long finish. The ceramic bottles are meant to reflect the cement vessels the winery uses when fermenting and aging Silver Chardonnay.
