    Winemaker's Notes:

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

    This second vintage follows last year's successful debut 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.

    The result is our latest presentation of a Chardonnay we consider as sleek and cool as Silver.
    -Charlie Wagner II, Winemaker

    This unoaked Chardonnay is a light gold color with a pale green tint. Clean, lively aromas of honeydew melon and green apple carry over to delicate tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and papaya, balanced with crisp mineral.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Probably the most expensive unoaked Chard out there, this is a stunning wine, showing the laserlike purity and bright acids that this northwestern part of the Highlands coaxes from the grapes. The brilliantly illuminated flavors range from limes and kiwis to green apples, peaches and guavas. The finish is dry, but with a honeyed unctuousness that could be a touch of botrytis.

    Dusty aromas of stone fruit pit, honey, mixed grains and gravel. Lively, grassy flavors of pear and lemon. More lemon in the tingly close.
