Mer Soleil Silver Chardonnay is not a typical Chardonnay, and its bottle is equally distinct. Its matte gray finish was inspired by the concrete fermenters that create this wine's singular character. For the winemaker, 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.
Fair in color and fresh from start to finish, the Mer Soleil Silver Unoaked Chardonnay opens up with aromas of flower blossoms, crisp pears and a hint of honeysuckle. Bright citrus evokes the clean taste of Meyer lemons, which grow amidst our estate vineyards, where a portion of this wine is sourced. On the palate, the wine is round and layered, with an acidity and depth that belie its unoaked character. The finish brings a lingering freshness that creates a perfect complement to salads, grilled seafood, tomato-based dishes and fresh oysters - and leaves a brightness in the mouth that leaves you wanting another sip.
