Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc California 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

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. - Geyser Peak Wines*Screw Cap*

  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).

A good buy at this price for a dry, crisp wine of considerable charm. It's layered in Meyer lemon, lime, peach, green apple, honey and vanilla flavors, and finishes long and spicy.

Pungent grass, gooseberry, lime and guava notes are intense and bright, with a mouthwatering acidity and a long, lingering finish. Drink now.

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.

Bright and tangy, with a strong, pungent herb and grassy side. The combination of a lean body, crisp acidity and intense flavors creates a very refreshing wine. Drink 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 itrsquo;s so ultra-clean and zesty.

The Aussies have taken a page from the Kiwisrsquo; book, striving for a fresh, grassy and grapefruity wine. Itrsquo;s lean and racy, clean and crisp, Try it by the glass at your local oyster bar.

This California white is both flavorful and value-priced. Itrsquo;s tangy and refreshing, with passion fruit, grapefruit and lime flavors that wrap together in a crisp finish.
