Mer Soleil Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands

From the Caymus Family of wines!
2021 Mer Soleil Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands...$18.99
Compare to $19.99 at Total Wine and More
Creamy yet fresh.  This is a great balanced Chardonnay with a touch of oak and great richness and length.  The wine is balanced by lively acidity and bright citrus
Forty minutes south of Monterey, California, the Santa Lucia Highlands is known for having ideal growing conditions for Chardonnay.  Cooling breezes off of Monterey Bay enable a slower ripening of the grapes, leading to an extended growing season and wine of heightened complexity and intense flavors
Suggested food pairings from winemaker Charlie Wagner: Pan seared Chilean sea bass, sizzling crab cakes or creamy fettuccine alfredo with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
