Flaxen in color and fresh from start to finish, the 2013 vintage opens up with aromas of fruit blossoms and Meyer lemon. Bright citrus shines through on the palate, with a crisp acidity and depth that belies the wine's unoaked character. On the finish: a lingeringfreshness that creates a perfect complement to salads, grilled seafood, tomato-based dishes and fresh oysters. 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.
