Simi Chardonnay 2008
Composed of top quality fruit from Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley and Carneros growing regions, Simi Chardonnay is characterized by excellent balance, luscious fruit flavors and a long, elegant finish. Lively on the palate with green apple, stone fruit and light citrus, accented by cream and spice notes from barrel fermentation.
Grassy/earthy scent. Flavors of tart lemon, a bit grassy, warm finish.
clean bright and refreshing not as buttery or heavy as other chardonnays but a definite buy
Aromas that remind me of bacon fat or baked chicken. Buttery with acidic citrus. Nice clean chardonnay for the price. I always seem to enjoy Simi wines

External Reviews for Simi Chardonnay
Simi is one of California's oldest wineries. Their Chardonnay is a rich wine with hints of vanilla on the nose backed up by loads of ripe fruit.
Appealing green apple, pear, honeysuckle and spicy apricot flavors emerge from behind a green note up front for a long, rich aftertaste. Drink now through 2001.
This soft white balances its warmth with toffee flavors of oak, along with mild apple and golden raisin fruit. It's just off dry, to chill for braised pork.
Simple and pleasant ripe pear, quince and earthy citrus flavors, with light toasty oak on the finish. Drink now.
Starts off with a somewhat yeasty aroma that alter reveal lemon, pear and grapefruit on the palate, with a clean finish.
Sweet, juicy orange and citrus oil flavors come up against tougher wheat germ and toasty scents of oaks. A full-textured wine for roast chicken.
Subtle green apple, pear, peach, citrus and citrus blossom give this white a clean, refreshing core of flavors, ending with a kiss of toasty oak. Drink now.
