Winemaker's Notes
A light golden color, this wine opens with warm, lush scents of apricot cobbler and brown spice, layered with notes of honeysuckle and a whiff of toasted bread. Entry on the palate is mouth-coating and creamy. Ripe fruit flavors of apricot and peach are perfectly balanced by a vibrant acidity, making this wine both luxurious and bright. The finish is unusually long, filling the mouth with a soft fruitiness and lingering natural acidity.

Critical Acclaim
Vintage 2015 - 90 Points - Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: Always consistent within its creamy, ripe fruit style, the 2015 Mer Soleil Santa Barbara Reserve Chardonnay delivers as expected. TASTING NOTES: This wine brings cream, butterscotch, and savory leaves to the fore. Its soft finish pairs nicely with cold-boiled chicken in a scallion and ginger sauce.
