Mer Soleil Silver Chardonnay 2016

Monterey County, California, United States

This Chardonnay made by Charlie Wagner of Napa Valley fame and was first produced in 2005. Mer Soleil Silver 2016 is a dry, full-bodied, unoaked Chardonnay from Monterey County. On the palate, tropical fruit and ripe orchard fruit come together with a soft citrus, crisp and clean finish. The opaque grey bottle is a nod to the stainless steel and cement tanks in which this wine is fermented and aged rather than oak barrels. Chill and enjoy now with grilled shrimp.
