    Winemaker's Notes:

    Silver unites the crisp mineral essence of classic Chablis style with the tropical elements found in Chardonnay of the Pacific coastline. Using Chardonnay grown in special blocks of the Mer Soleil Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County, we harvest the grapes when just fully ripe, their gold color hued with the green, expressing clean aromas of Chardonnay fruit and firm acidity. The wine is fermented and aged in small cement wine tanks imported from France, allowing for this varietal's clean aromas to shine bright. We're celebrating this process with a new ceramic bottle and cork finish.

    The bottle is the first thing noticed about this wine, but once uncorked, the wine takes center stage. Light and crisp with no oak to overwhelm. Delightful! Great with fish or simply as a nice glass of white wine to sip in front of the fire before dinner.

    Served this in a multi course wine pairing dinner. Paired with the third course, a grilled chicken with lemon butter caper sauce. Everyone went nuts over this pairing. The citrus notes really popped. Have enjoyed this on its own as well. Nice when you don't want a heavy oaked chardonnay.

    This is an excellent chardonnay, and I'm not a particular fan of white wines. It's crisp and fresh tasting w/just enough body to make it interesting. I later bought it at a stand alone store since I was traveling and couldn't use wine access.

    Thought this was OK, not great. Strong acidity detracts from the lack of oak -- didn't get the complexity of a French unoaked chardonnay, nor the creamy hit of a Californian oaked Chardonnay. Ceramic bottle a total gimmic.
