Geyser Peak Chardonnay Alexander Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Das Bouquet ist sehr typisch für einen Chardonnay aus dieser Zone: fruchtbetont und mit einer präsenten Ausbauaromatik. Im Gaumen ist der Chardonnay von Geyser Peak aus dem Alexander Valley perfekt, ausgewogen und dicht. Ein stilvoller, lange anhaltender Abgang setzt diesem ausgezeichneten Wein die Krone auf.

  Founded in 1880, Geyser Peak Winery is one of California’s oldest and most award-winning wineries. Founded by Augustus Quitzow, the winery was built in 1882 in Geyserville, making it one of the pioneering California wineries of the time. Geyser Peak Winery consists of 5 vineyards, one of which is located in the Russian River Valley AVA, while the others are in Alexander Valley. Since most of the grapes come from Alexander Valley, the growing regions have long ripening seasons. Alexander Valley is a great region for growing Cabernet Sauvignon vines, but Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc are also successfully grown. Ondine Chattan and Jaeson Mackura, winemakers for Geyser Peak Winery, are also behind the screw cap movement that is very controversial among wineries and consumers alike. All of their white wines are bottled using screw caps, or “Stelvin closures” as they are often called (Stelvin is actually a brand of screw caps, like Ziplock is a brand synonymous with zip bags and Xerox is a brand synonymous with photocopy machines).

Das Bouquet ist sehr typisch für einen Chardonnay aus dieser Zone: fruchtbetont und mit einer präsenten Ausbauaromatik (Vanille, Butter). Im Gaumen ist der Chardonnay von Geyser Peak aus dem Alexander Valley perfekt, ausgewogen und dicht. Ein stilvoller, lange anhaltender Abgang setzt diesem ausgezeichneten Wein die Krone auf.

Fruit-forward, lively and intense. A pale straw color, this wine's lifted aromas of pear and fig are rounded out by a touch of creamy vanilla. On the palate, these same characters are amplified and intensified, and harmonize with balanced oak.

The color is a soft straw, with flashes of bright gold. Rich, complex aromas of pear, melon and Fuji apples burst out of the glass on this intense, beautifully balanced and wonderfully food-friendly Chardonnay. Its first impression of bright, bold

Wine Tasting NotesFocused aromas of pear, fig, and tropical fruit show the wines fruit intensity, while undertones of butterscotch and vanilla provide complexity. On the palate, these fruit flavors intensify and are complemented by pretty notes of balanced oak. The initial creaminess on the palate evolves into a crisp finish that makes this wine a perfect match for a wide variety of cuisines. Try it with sea bass in a ginger coconut broth or a creamy pasta topped with crab or shrimp.
