Simi Sonoma County Chardonnay 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
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 pineapple, white peach, green apple, Meyer lemon, and orange zest laced with hints of butter, cream, vanilla, and flint. It all comes together on the palate with zesty, fresh flavors of Eureka lemon, stone fruit, white peach, and nectarine framed with sweet toast and vanilla, followed by a nice mineral lift and orange peel on the finish. Enjoy this balanced, food-friendly Chardonnay with smoked salmon with lemon aioli and toasted brioche; spot prawns sautéed with garlic, lemon, and parsley; or a Caprese salad with ripe peach slices, basil,and fresh mozzarella.
