Deep golden color, which I wasn't expected for an unoaked chard. Nice warm, bright fruit on the nose. Nectarine, peach, some lemon and light minerality. Very nice mouthfeel and vibrant acid on the palate. Wonderful vivacity and brightness. Peach, apricot, nectarine and a nice lemon tartness. Really nice fruit unencumbered by oak. Pleasant light minerality. Nice wine! HIghly recommended easy drinking unoaked chard. 90 pts. 3/1/13

Lemon hued and extremely tropical on the nose this is captured sunshine in a bottle from Caymus. Central coast fruit at its best. The chardonnay varietal is naked to any influence of oak creating a bevy of tropical fruits including but not limited to star fruit guava cherimoya jackfruit passion fruit rambutan and loganberry. The palate is luxurious like a relaxing sun drenched beach of the tropics. Purity of the chardonnay grape is featured here. Will pair well with a plethora of cuisines or enjoy on its own.

By The Case - Farmed from our vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County, this Chardonnay is fermented in stainless steel and cement tanks. Mer Soleil is part of the Wagner Family of wines, including Caymus and Belle Glos.

Mer Soleil’s latest offering is certainly eye-grabbing, given its silver ceramic bottle. Its made with grapes from the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA (part of the larger Monterey AVA). Light straw in color, with aromas of applesauce and stone fruit with a hint of spice (cinnamon?) and green peppercorn. Creamy flavors of white peach, grapefruit, and tropical fruit with undertones of buttered popcorn. The ample acidity present in this beauty is brought on, no doubt, by the absence of oak aging and is a refreshing reminder of how adaptable Chardonnay can be. This wine would certainly pair well with grilled or roasted poultry, as well as various other dishes usually reserved for acidic Italian white wines or Sauvignon Blanc. I love that this wine remains full and robust without the presence of oak. Drink now and often.

Clean, fresh and juicy, with pure honeydew melon notes, subtle citrus shadings and a hint of cream. Drink now through 2016.

lighter on its feet, clean and crisp, bright and steely. This Silver Chardonnay from Mer Soleil is, as the name suggests, an alternative to the gold label.

Winemaker's Notes:

Luscious fruit flavors and a smooth creamy texture (without oak!). More than hints of apricot, apples, ripe pineapple and butterscotch. Finishes clean. We lift our glasses, once again, to these masters of California Chardonnay.
