    Winemaker's Notes:

    For the winemaking team that brings you Caymus, Mer Soleil, and and Belle Glos!

    The debut vintage of Silver, an effort to unite 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 harvested the grapes when just fully ripe, their gold color hued with green, expressing clean aromas of Chardonnay fruit and firm acidity. Bottled in screwcap to preserve freshness, and unoaked in the style of Chablis.

    "Delicious, with pure, rich, concentrated pear, citrus, honeysuckle and spicy apple flavors that are complex and well-focused, with a long, juicy aftertaste. Drink now through 2010."
    -Wine Spectator

    "I have been waiting for a California winery to produce a big, crisp, mineral-dominated, richly fruity, virgin Chardonnay, and this screw cap-finished effort was worth the wait... Rich and honeyed with plenty of orange oil, lemon zest, and tropical fruit, this crisp Chardonnay should drink well for 1 – 2 years."
    -Robert Parker
