Simi Chardonnay, Sonoma County
90 points by Wine Enthusiast
The hue of this wine is brilliantly clear, golden straw—a color that dramatically sets the stage for what is to come. The nose is similarly demonstrative, with expressive notes of tangerine, white peach, green apple, Meyer lemon, and orange blossom laced with hints of butter, cream, vanilla, and flint. It all comes together on the palate with zesty, fresh flavors of tangerine, lemon curd, stone fruit, white peach, and nectarine framed by vanilla followed with wet-stone minerality and orange peel on the finish. Enjoy this food-friendly Chardonnay with poached halibut with salsa verde, tortellini alla panna, grilled pork loin with stone fruit compote, or asparagus with hollandaise sauce and a soft poached egg.
