Winemaker Notes

Layered aromas of mango, peach, nectarine and citrus dominate the nose, underscored by more subtle notes of honey, caramel and light smoke. The wine is fresh and citrusy on entry into the mouth, deepening and becoming richer on the mid-palate as flavors of lemon crème brûlée, stone fruits, and creamy butter fold in. The finish is long and complex, combining notes of honey and citrus with a lush, mouthfilling texture.

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.

Charlie Wagner II is the winemaker and directs vineyard operations at Mer Soleil
