Simi sources the highest quality grapes from several appellations within Sonoma County to make a Sauvignon Blanc that reflects the area's diverse growing regions. Each vineyard adds unique characters to the final blend-some contribute power and vibrancy, others offer elegance and richness. Our 2001 Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc combines delicate citrus flavors with hints of spice. A touch of Semillon adds body and roundness to a silky mouthfeel. Crisp, cleansing acidity makes Sauvignon Blanc a perfect companion to many foods. Try it with salads, oysters and shellfish, prosciutto, feta and Parmesan cheeses.
