External Reviews for Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc California
An elegant style of Sauvignon Blanc showing distinct classic gooseberry, grapefruit and grassy characteristics. The vastness of characters reflect the diversity of vineyards locations selected in blending this wine. A beautifully balanced palate finishes with clean, crisp acidity and a lingering aftertaste. An ideal wine as an aperitif or with a variety of shellfish.
Classic gooseberry, grapefruit and grassy aromas that reflect beautifully balanced fruit and a clean, crisp finish.
Bright and fruity, with snappy citrus and passionfruit flavors. Zingy on the finish with a refreshing, lemony edge. Terrific for summer sipping.
Fresh fig and grapefruit come to mind with this effusively fruity white that sports bright, refreshing acidity and a sleek, lean body. Hints of freshly mowed grass and minerals add complexity, and the finish is long and delightful. California grapes, Australia-style winemaking. Ready now.
Racy and strong, and comes down firmly on the grass, hay and grapefruit side, brimming with bright, tart fruit. A touch of sugar puts it just this side of sweet, with an intriguing taste of white chocolate on the finish. Gets the nod because it's so ultra-clean and zesty.
Crisp and clean, this simple sauvignon has the freshness of a spritz of lemon, a brisk white for lemon sole.
Dry and crisp in acidity, this Sauvignon Blanc shows pineapple and lime flavors, with a strong hit of gooseberry. May be too green for some, but it gets those tastebuds whistling.
Three practices define Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc. First, we source grapes from cool-climate, primarily coastal areas throughout California, from as far south as Monterey and as far north as Lake County. Second, we deliberately pick some lots of grapes earlier than is conventional, in order to capture their freshness, crisp acidity, and a classic Sauvignon Blanc grassiness. Third, each lot of grapes is vinified separately, through cool fermentation and cold storage in stainless steel, to retain fruit characters. In 2008, we expanded our use of several new yeast strains which can encourage the development of thiols, the passion-fruit aromas and flavors that we love. The dozens of small lots brought in together show a full range of flavors, from ripe tropical fruit to fresh citrus to grassy herbaceousness. After extensive trial blending, the final wine balances the very best of the lots together.
Luscious, deep scents of lemon grass, grapefruit and passion fruit jump from the glass to proudly proclaim this wine’s varietal. A generous, fruit-forward palate shows juicy citrus flavors of lime and tangerine, balanced by bright, crisp acidity. The pleasant finish persists on the palate with great length of flavor. This is an easy-sipping, eminently drinkable wine that doesn’t sacrifice complexity or varietal character in its quest to be flat-out enjoyable. The perfect aperitif, this wine also makes an ideal partner to oysters and nearly any shellfish, as well as salads and light fish and chicken dishes.
