Winery Notes: 95% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon

Simi Sauvignon Blanc is everything a wine made from this grape should be—filled with lively acidity and crisp, clean fruit flavors. A small amount of Sémillon is blended in to help develop richness on the palate.

The grapes for Simi’s Sauvignon Blanc represent the best of Sonoma County. The final blend is a reflection of fruit from prestigious vineyards throughout Sonoma County with climates vastly different from one another. Warmer climates produce tropical fruit and melon flavors, along with a silky texture. Cooler climates contribute grass, lime and mineral characteristics and a bright, zingy acid component.
