    Winemaker Notes

    Style: Rich, oaky dry white

    Tasting Notes: Full-bodied, very rich with concentrated ripe pear and almost tropical fruit as well as integrated oak-grain flavours which continue on to a long, full finish.

    Mer Soleil, Central Coast, California
    Image of winery
    The Mer Soleil Vineyard is named for 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, Mer Soleil’s Chardonnay vines are nestled on east-facing lower slopes of the Sierra de Salinas range in what is one of the coolest, driest grape growing areas in California. During the growing season, warmer inland temperatures at the southern end of the Salinas Valley pull cooling morning and evening fogs into the vineyards. The afternoons, in contrast, are evenly warm and sunny. The absence of rain throughout the long growing season—harvest typically continues into November—and a pattern of brisk afternoon breezes keeps the grapes dry and pristine.
