This vintage is one of the best Chardonnays from Simi in several years. Brimming with lush flavors of mangoes, papayas, pineapple custard and caramel. Crisp, clean acids with well endowed toasty oak ad's vanilla and spices. Creamy texture, finesse and elegance finish off this classic Russian River Chard. Drink now, 15,000 cases produced.

Which is the better Chardonnay?? Is it the Yellow Tail or this Simi??

I have not tasted the Yellow Tail Chard yet. Simi makes several different Chards and I think Yellow tail also does. The main difference between Austrailian chard and California is the heavy oak used in California chards. I look for the Yellow Tail and try it soon. Thanks for the comment.
