    Winemaker's Notes:

    Mer Soleil Silver is not a typical Chardonnay, and its bottle is equally distinct. We've used ceramic instead of glass, inspired by the concrete fermenters that create this wine's singular character. For us, that character stems from a true sense of place, grapes grown in ideal conditions and winemaking techniques that break from tradition to create something new.

    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.

    Love this wine. Excellent for those who prefer a French Chardonnay and no oakiness.

    We had this wine for lunch today with stone crab. It was light, crisp and buttery. It was just lovely. It's definitely a keeper.
