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
Lemon and vanilla bean aromas dominate, followed by pear and hazelnut flavors, with a toasty finish that lingers on and on.
Appearance: Brilliantly clear, light yellow straw Aroma: Vibrant notes of pear, green apple and orange zest, accented by soft hints of cream and toast. Flavor: Lively on the palate with peach, pear, lemon and pineapple flavors, highlighted with warm spice notes and caramel cream.
Ripe and lush, with layers of pear, butter, apricot and peach pit flavors. Well-integrated toasty oak carries through the finish.
Broad leesiness and toasty oak give this a smoky bacon scent. It's supple and warm, a white to chill for a grilled pork chop.
Herersquo;s a clean, steely Chardonnay with good varietal character. Itrsquo;s dry and crisp, with a creamy texture housing flavors of pineapple, vanilla and smoky oak. Nice with roast salmon, corn risotto or a simple broiled chicken.
Soft, simple and a little sweet, with candied pineapple, lemon and lime flavors touched with butterscotchy, vanilla oak.
A rich, concentrated style, with earthy tropical fruit, pineapple and yellow apple flavors accented by a pleasing spiciness. Drink now through 2008.
