Simi Chardonnay Sonoma County 2012 750ml

Simi Chardonnay Sonoma County

The remarkable color of this wine cannot be ignored. It is brilliantly clear straw with glimmers of gold throughout. The nose is similarly expressive, 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 tangerine, peach, and green apple that are lifted by a light toasted and warm oak character that reveals itself as sweet vanilla, hazelnut, nutmeg, and smoky bacon. This wine is perfectly balanced with a delicate, lightly floral finish. We suggest you show off this 2012 Chardonnay by serving it with clam linguine, a classic wedge salad, or Florida stone crab claws.

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 to this wine. 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.

Each of Sonoma County’s most prestigious regions for growing Chardonnay offers a remarkably distinct fruit profile. We blended grapes from all four of these regions to make our 2012 Sonoma County Chardonnay, with 31% coming from Carneros, 31% from the Alexander Valley, 29% from the Russian River Valley, and 9% from Sonoma Coast. Grapes from the Sangiacomo vineyard in Carneros—Sonoma County’s coolest growing region—added brilliant acidity and bright, pure, mouthwatering flavors of green apple, tangerine, and lemon. Fruit from the Goldfields and Stiling vineyards of the Russian River Valley brought richness, elegance, and fruit flavors leaning toward the tropical, such as peach, apricot, and other stone fruits. In the Alexander Valley, where the days are warmer, Chardonnay from Reedy, Clark, and Hoot Owl Creek vineyards contributed full, ripe orchard fruit flavors of Red Delicious apple and pear followed by a generous mouthfeel.
