"The Mer Soleil Vineyard is named for the two natural forces that create its growing conditions: sea (mer) and sun (soleil). With plantings at two separate locations in the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey County, our Mer Soleil Chardonnay vines are nestled on east-facing lower slopes of the Sierra de Salinas range in what is one of the coolest, direct grape-growing area in Califormia. The climate of this coastal appellation causes morning and evening fog and warm, bright afternoons, a combination that produces the high-quality fruit we use to make this bright, elegant Chardonnay." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
The 2014 Reserve is a head-turner of a Chardonnay, with an up-front burst of citrus and tropical fruit that brings to mind ripe pineapple and mango. With the help of fermentation in all French oak, warm tones of vanilla accompany the fruit with a toasty, slightly buttered edge. This is definitive cool-climate Chardonnay with freshness to accompany the richness that its signature barrel aging brings.
