Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas and flavors of gooseberry, green fig, lemongrass, snap pea, chive, honeydew melon and lime abound and interplay with passionfruit and mineral notes. The lively acidity makes this an ideal summer aperitif and a delightful partner to oysters, shellfish, scallops and avocado, as well as a brilliant partner to spicy cuisine.

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.
