Details

Mer Soleil Chardonnay is brought to you by the Wagner family, founders of Caymus in Napa Valley. This reserve bottling is full-bodied and aged in French oak, although only a portion undergoes malolactic fermentation so that a bright acidity is retained. From proprietor and winemaker Charlie Wagner: "Golden-hued in color, the wine opens with opulent aromas of peach, apple, Meyer lemon and baking spices. The palate is an inviting medley of peach and D'Anjou pear; layered with tropical notes of pineapple and banana. The vibrant acidity is well balanced by warm butterscotch and subtle coconut notes that seamlessly meld together to create a luscious, mouth-filling richness. It is medium to full-bodied with a refreshing burst of minerality and well-integrated oak characteristics that offer a round, lengthy finish."

Wilfred Wong - 90pts - "How much butter can I stand? More than I thought. The 2017 Mer Soleil Reserve Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay is a wine that I would sip on a beach while watching the sunset. This wine is ultrarich. Its decadent aromas and flavors of ripe apple and cream should pair well with Asiago and dry-cured salami."
