I love this wine! Yes, I have a soft spot for the fact it helped mitigate the screaming children at a Disney restaurant the first time I tasted it, but it’s more than that. Lovely ripe peach and pear aromas with nicely tapped butterscotch and vanilla spoke. So yum. But give that kid a soother please.

Reviews and Ratings

Angela rated this wine as 91/100
Owned by the Wagner family of Caymus Vineyards renown, Mer Soleil is a premium Chardonnay winery located in the Central Coast. The wines are famous for lemony freshness and ripe tropical fruit flavours. Wagner also barrel-ferments and barrel-ages the wines, adding gentle accents of woodsmoke and toast.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
