2015 Simi Sauvignon Blanc
California-Sonoma County

Winemaker’s Notes: This brilliantly clear, pale-straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc leads with fresh, appealing citrus notes of lime zest, pink grapefruit, and fresh lemon grass followed by green papaya, passion fruit, and green apple. Wet stone adds a mineral component to the aromatics. This wine is fresh, bright, and crisp. Lively and forward on the palate, our Sauvignon Blanc has zesty notes of lime andgrapefruit. Refreshing, full, and vibrant; the palate has a long finish with a lingering impression of green citrus, stone fruit, and mineral. The bright citrus notes make you think of warm weather and outdoor entertaining. SIMI Chef Kolin Vazzoler suggests pairing this wine with goat cheese ravioli with spiced tomato sauce, crabgazpacho, mussels Provencal or smoked salmon with capers, lemon, and red onion.
