Mer Soleil Silver Unoaked Chardonnay 2017
A light gossamer gold, the 2017 vintage opens with clean, fresh scents of kiwi, citrus zest and nectarine. A mineral character calls to mind the rock formations found inside caves. Crisp entry leads into a striking softness and creamy texture. The flavor of lemon squares offers a perfect balance, neither too tart nor too sweet. A faint smokiness is characteristic of wines made from grapes grown in windier stretches of Monterey County. The finish features traces of lemon and lime, filling the mouth with bright notes of lingering freshness.
