Mer Soleil Silver is a pure, clean expression of our Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay. The wine is fermented and aged in a combination of stainless steel and small Nomblot cement tanks that are imported from France and feature state-of-the-art technology. Our unique ceramic bottle is reminiscent of the cement fermenters that enhance this wine so beautifully, and continues to preserve the bright, fresh fruit characters.
Bright minerality and fresh-cut hay qualities are apparent on the nose, followed by zesty citrus and stone-fruit notes. Seamless fruit flavors of grapefruit, lemon and gooseberry shine through on the mid-palate, 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 fresh summer salads, grilled seafood, tomato-based dishes and guacamole.
