Geyser Peak Winery Block Collection Sparkling Shiraz 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine’s color is deep, garnet red, over which the richly colored mousse or foam on the surface of the wine shows beautifully. Aromas of pepper and spice fill the nose, with elements of blueberry, blackberry and vanilla adding complexity and intrigue. The palate opens with a total explosion of bubbles. Rich fruit flavors and more blackberry are followed by a wonderfully creamy texture of soft, round tannins and a long, long finish.

  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).
