SIMI Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc 2015
This brilliantly clear, pale-straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc is bright and crisp. The wine opens with complex aromas of fresh mown hay, green papaya, lime, passion fruit, pink grapefruit, green apple, lemon grass, honeysuckle, and wet stone. Refreshing flavors of lime, tangerine, grapefruit, and white peach follow. The finish is long and full with green citrus and minerality.
Two brothers who immigrated to Northern California in the mid-1800s saw promising similarities between Sonoma County and their native Tuscany where wine had been made for centuries. In 1876, they founded SIMI in Healdsburg, California. Today, SIMI claims the honour of having been in continuous operation longer than any other winery in Sonoma County, and they still make wine in the stone cellar built by the Simi brothers in 1890.
