Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc Alexander Valley 2008
We were immediately struck by the bright aromatics of this wine. Dominated by aromas of lime, lemon, and citrus blossom and intensified with intriguing notes of wet pebble, gooseberry and lychee, this is a fruit driven yet complex style of Sauvignon Blanc. Lime and citrus flavors form the core of the palate, which is balanced by bright, lively acidity and a lasting impression of citrus with a flinty finish. The quintessential summer apéritif, this wine also pairs beautifully with oysters, fresh chèvre and ceviche or just by itself.
Star bright straw hue with expressive aromas of lemongrass, key limes and gooseberries, in focus flavors of the same with a hint of lemon, leading to a long, clean finish. A good value wine with racy acidity for anything that you squeeze a lemon on.
Clear light straw hue, aromas & flavors of gooseberry, wet grass and citrus arranged with crisp acidity to a short finish. Rather generic.
External Reviews for Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc Alexander Valley
Classic aromas of grapefruit, citrus, lemon zest and lemongrass jump out of the glass and proudly proclaim the wine's varietal character. A generous, fruit-forward palate shows juicy citrus flavors of grapefruit and tangerine, balanced by bright, crisp acidity. The pleasant finish is persistent with great length of flavor. Perfect as an apéritif, this wine also makes an ideal partner to oysters and nearly any shellfish, as well as salads and light fish and chicken dishes.
Just like Old Faithful in Yosemite National Park, the 2005 Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc erupts with flavors of grapefruit and other fresh citrus fruits. This perfectly balanced wine would fair well on its own or with lighter dishes such as salads or seafood.
Easy to drink and likeable for its slightly sweet grass, lemon and lime, fig and melon flavors, and the zesty clean streak of citrusy acids. The wine cuts across the palate and stimulates it. A very nice value in a cocktail-style white wine.
The Aussies have taken a page from the Kiwis' book, striving for a fresh, grassy and grapefruity wine. It's lean and racy, clean and crisp, Try it by the glass at your local oyster bar.
From the Alexander Valley, this wine is made with a combination of grapes from multiple small lots on the Geyser Peak Estate. Gooseberry and grapefruit engage the senses, while the crisp, clean acidity quenches all of your Sauvignon Blanc dreams. Ideal with fresh salads and grilled seafood.
This wine is so classic, so delicious and so refreshing, it almost doesn't need a review - after all, who doesn't already know and love the flagship Geyser Peak white? Instantly appealing to any Pinot drinker looking for an upgrade, or a New Zealand white drinker looking for something less jarring, any hostess looking for an all-around enjoyable party or dinner white. In other words, pretty much any white wine drinker would love the Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc! Medium-bodied, with great acidity and softer white peach and pear flavors rounding out the traditional grapefruit and dill.
Refreshing, with melon, grass and lemon flavors that are round and fleshy, ending with a touch of citrus acidity. Drink now.
