Simi Sauvignon Blanc 2009
This brilliantly clear, light straw-colored wine smells of pineapple, passion fruit, guava and grapefruit, with a hint of minerality. The palate offers generous nectarine and grapefruit with some flinty notes and a clean, refreshing finish. Simi Sauvignon Blanc pairs wonderfully well with gazpacho, raw oysters, and beet, orange and goat cheese salad.
A more subtle style of Sauvignon Blanc that is both light and refreshing. Pear, apple and a hint of spice set off with medium acidity and good balance. A very nice mid week drinker.
A solid 3, overpriced over $10
Decent sauvignon blanc, especially for the price. Nice citrus flavors, green apple but not the over the top grapefruit. Decent balance and nice acidity. Good summer time deck wine.
Crisp and light but lacking flavor.
Quite pale color. Herbal, grassy nose. Fortunately, that herbalness and grassiness is very much diminished in the mouth. Very pleasant lime tartness on the palate--not quite as tart as most NZ SBs, but significant presence. Back label indicates grapes are sourced from Alexander, Knight's and Russian River Valleys. US$9.99 at Total Wine last Feb.
Sharp green apple and fennel; good acidity. Excellent example of what I love about Sonoma Sauv Blancs and at a great value.
External Reviews for Simi Sauvignon Blanc
SIMI Sauvignon Blanc is everything a wine made from this noble grape should be. Small amounts of Viognier and Semillon were blended in to contribute additional richness to the palate. Fermented and aged 100% of this wine in stainless steel to guarantee classic, clean, and lively Sauvignon Blanc.
With smidgens of Viognier and Sémillon, this wine offers aromas of sweet jasmine and fig, and is bright with some heft on the palate. With suggestions of tropical fruit and apricot, the acidity is subtle.
What a nice Sauvignon Blanc. Itrsquo;s bone dry and zesty in acidity, with lemon and lime, grapefruit, vanilla and spice flavors that have a touch of savory gooseberry. Great cocktail wine.
Steve Reeder blends this Sauvignon with five percent Semillon, adding a hint of wheat-like savor to the fruit. Itrsquo;s fresh and bright, packed with lime,m lemongrass and peach flavors that show off its blend of warm- and cool-climate fruit. A versatile, mouthwatering white to serve with white sausages, whether seafood, chicken or veal.
Nicely dry and crisp, with pleasant citrus, lemongrass, mineral, honey and vanilla flavors. Could be a bit more concentrated, but itrsquo;s a clean, savory cocktail sipper.
A classic white wine, crisp, dry, pale and brilliant. Made with fruit from their favorite Sonoma County vineyards, and blended with just 9% Segrave;millon for a round, spicy note in the mouth and finish. Only 14% of the wine was barrel fermented this time, to preserve the purity of the rich fruit flavors. All the wine was aged in older French oak and stirred on its lees to promote the silky texture that feels so good in your mouth. Taste the layers of citrus, melon and pear, and outstanding fruit and acid balance.
