SILVER captures the pure, clean expression of
Chardonnay from the Pacific coastline in California.
Using Chardonnay grapes grown in our Mer Soleil
Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey
County, we harvest the grapes when just fully ripe,
their gold color hued with green. Thee wine is
fermented and aged in natural cement tanks imported from France, allowing for this varietal's clean aromas to shine bright. We're celebrating this process with a new ceramic bottle and cork finish.
Mineral driven nose with citrus shining
through. Cement tank fermentation and aging bring
out aromas remindful of the first rain of the season or a wet rock. Soft and round entry with an acid
backbone informs you these grapes are grown in a
cooler climate. Mid palate reveals ripe fruit such as
lemons, gooseberry and grapefruit. Finishes dry while the acid comes and goes in a balanced fashion. Laser sharp minerality carries through from start to finish on both palate and aroma.
Love this wine. Unoaked, in my opinion, is better.
