2011 Mer Soleil Silver Unoaked Chardonnay, Santa Lucia Highlands, CA, $21 (S) – Rating 93

The blending of grapes aged in both stainless steel and concrete tanks creates an excellent expression of Chardonnay, crisp without sharp edges. The nose hints of tropicals, red apples and creamy pineapple. Food pairing acidity is balanced with a creamy mouth-feel combined with flavors of red apple, baked pears and citrus with notes of minerality on the long finish. One of our favorite 2011 Chardonnays.
