Silver Unoaked Chardonnay

2007 Silver Unoaked Chardonnay

Using Chardonnay grown in special blocks of the Mer Soleil Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, we harvested the grapes when just fully ripe, their gold color hued with green, expressing clean aromas of Chardonnay fruit and firm acidity. The grapes were pressed and fermented in both stainless steel and cement vats, with no oak contact or malolactic fermentation. delicate tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and papaya, balanced with crisp mineral notes. The full texture lasts through a luxuriously long finish.
