Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc California 2003

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Refreshing, with melon, grass and lemon flavors that are round and fleshy, ending with a touch of citrus acidity. Drink now.

  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).

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.

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.
