Simi Chardonnay 2011
External Reviews for Simi Chardonnay
We made our first wine from Sonoma County grapes in 1876 and have been continuously making wine in the same stone cellar in Healdsburg, California since 1890.
Brilliantly clear, light yellow straw. Vibrant notes of pear, green apple and orange zest, accented by soft hints of cream and toast. Lively on the palate with peach, pear, lemon and pineapple flavors, highlighted with warm spice notes and caramel cream.
The hue of this wine is brilliantly clear straw with glimmers of golden light-a color that dramatically sets the stage for what is to come. The nose is similarly demonstrative, with tropical notes of guava, pineapple, bright nectarine, peach, green apple, and citrus delicately spiced with toasty oak. Lifted aromatics of orange blossoms and a hint of smoke add a savory character. It all comes together on the palate with well-defined, supremely balanced, and forward flavors of nectarine, peach, and lemon that are lifted by a lightly toasted and warm oak character that reveals itself as sweet vanilla, hazelnut, nutmeg, and smoky bacon. This wine is perfectly balanced with a delicate, zesty tangerine finish. Enjoy this 2011 Chardonnay by serving it with housemade Tagliatelle with spot prawns and lemon thyme butter sauce, seared scallops with goat cheese, and summer truffle ravioli or baked chicken thigh with saffron garlic sauce. - WineryAging: 85% aged for eight months in a comb...
