Simi, Sonoma County Chardonnay'08, CA, USA

A medium-crisp and complex full-bodied buttery Chardonnay from Sonoma County in CA.

Technical Data: 100% Chardonnay aged 6 months in 25% new oak.

Description: Bright straw yellow color. On the nose, lemon and orange blossom aromas are entwined with a hint of honey and a touch of buttery oak. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied and expressing a nice complexity showing off luscious tangerine mingled with green apple and ripe pear backed up by slightly butterscotch flavors and a buttery cream long lasting finish. Extremely well balanced, nice acidity with a touch of zing just by the end of the palate.

Food Pairing & Service: This is a gorgeous wine to enjoy by itself or with food. I would particularly recommend seafood or Asian spicy dishes with this wine, I would also definitely pair it with clam soup or Alfredo linguine with shrimps.

Score: 9/10.

Ageing Potential: Easily up to 6-8 years.

Price as seen on DC shelf: $19.99
