Winemaker's Notes:

This wine exhibits a soft straw color with flashes of bright gold. Rich, complex aromas of pear, white peach and Fuji apples burst out of the glass on this intense, beautifully balanced and wonderfully food-friendly Chardonnay. Its first impression of bright, bold fruit is rounded out with subtle aromas of toast, vanilla and butterscotch. On the palate, the wine shows a superb balance between creamy richness and palate-cleansing acidity. This is a unique wine that expresses all the benefits of its terrior-driven origin.

About Geyser Peak:

One of California's oldest and most award-winning wineries, Geyser Peak was founded in 1880, a pioneer of the Alexander Valley in Sonoma County. Perched on a hillside across from Geyser Peak Mountain, this beautiful setting overlooks Geyserville, the Russian River and the northern end of Alexander Valley.

The winery consistently garners some of the most prestigious awards in winemaking, including Winery of the Year and Winemaker of the Year honors. Its outstanding team of winemakers and viticulturalists are noted for fruit-forward, food-friendly wines from prime vineyard sources in the Alexander Valley.
