SIMI Russian River Valley Reserve Chardonnay has a beautiful light straw color with a golden edge. The wine opens with expressive nutmeg, toasted brioche, lemon zest, and stone fruit, with savory notes of smoke and lush cream. The palate is bright and pure, with minerality, light toast, pineapple, and green apple, along with hints of smoke. This Reserve is rich, flinty, and mouthwatering with good structure and a beautiful finish. It reflects the best of what Russian River Valley fruit can offer: rich, complex wines with depth and agility. 100% Chardonnay.
All of the fruit for this wine went directly to the press in whole clusters to safeguard the pure fruit flavors of the field. We barrel-fermented 100% of this Chardonnay and followed that with secondary malolactic fermentation for 80% of the wine to add richness and creaminess. We then aged the wine for 11 months in 100% French oak barrels, 55% of which were new and 35% one year old.
Try it with seared scallops with green pea ravioli and lemon thyme butter sauce, seared halibut with warm herb vinaigrette, or lobster bisque.
