A terrific deal on a superb Chardonnay from the Wagner Family, producers of Caymus and Conundrum.
2014 Mer Soleil Reserve, Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay
Winery $43... Sale $27.99
Golden and sun-kissed, the 2014 vintage opens up with the fresh, tropical scents of pineapple and citrus blossom, balanced by the smooth character of vanilla. White peach comes through on the palate, which has a vibrant acidity, balanced by the natural character of fully ripe fruit. Medium to full-bodied, this wine has a finish that is lengthy but never heavy, its mix of oak, butter and fruit characteristics blending seamlessly and leaving a harmonious, lingering impression.
