Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 91/100
A great value full-bodied Chardonnay from Sonoma County, California with a mouthful of ripe stone fruit, pear and dried pineapple flavours vibrant on the palate and all wrapped up in toasty oak spice. Simi was founded in 1876, and the cellars that were built in 1890 are still in use today.
Chardonnay food pairings: roasted chicken spinach and chick pea salad with citrus honey dressing, Circassian chicken, grilled chopped chicken in crepes and white mushroom sauce.
Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

If you a fan of California Chardonnay this one's for you - rich, lemony and fairly bold without being overpowering. Nice balance and a long finish. Pair with creamy pasta or turkey with all the trimmings. A substantial pour for the price. Tasted February 2020. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Simi sources their Chardonnay from vineyards throughout Sonoma County (Alexander Valley, Sonoma Valley, Russian River,Valley, Dry Creek, and Sonoma Coast), which results in a beautiful textbook California Chardonnay at a great price! Ripe and juicy, creamy and full bodied, the aromas and flavours showcase the warm California sun, with golden apple, grilled pineapple, vanilla bean, and butterscotch. Enjoy year round with roasted poultry, BBQ fare, fish tacos, and creamy pasta dishes. Tasted March 2020. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Lovely! Aromas of golden apple, pineapple and pear with a hint of warm honey. Medium+ bodied on the palate with a creamy texture, bright citrus and tropical notes, and a hint of honey and vanilla on the finish. Enjoy with scallops or lobster dishes.
|Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A medium-bodied Chardonnay from Sonoma County, north California. Ripe pear and tropical fruit aromas with medium acidity on the palate. The finish is oaky and smooth. Pair with roast poultry or chicken-based appetizers.
|Simi 2018 Chardonnay is great value under $20. Full-bodied and delish with ripe melon, stone fruit, spicy and toasty flavours on the palate. Good acidity to handle roast chicken or Cornish game hens. - Community Wine Reviews|
