    Region: Central Coast, California

    Varietal: Chardonnay

    Style: Rich & Creamy

    Item no. 95828

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Soft gold color. Richly perfumed nose, with light notes of honeysuckle, truffle and buttery oak. Full, layered flavors of tropical fruit are balanced by a bright acidity of sweet citrus, and linger though the long, creamy finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Year in and year out, Mer Soleil’s Chardonnay is one of the biggest, most distinctive ones in California. The ’06 is almost like a late-harvest dessert wine, rich in apricot jam, pineapple custard and new oak butterscotch flavors, but for all the opulence, it’s entirely dry, and has zesty Monterey acidity. Almost a food group in itself, it will challenge chefs to rise to the occasion.

    Ripe and delicious in a rich, opulent style, with a mix of tropical fruit, pineapple, citrus and nectarine. Full-bodied and fresh, with lively, cleansing acidity. Drink now through 2011.

    Mer Soleil is a superb white wine that I recommend to everyone. It's a wine you can really enjoy and it's great for these warmer summer days. Enjoy!
