Winemaker's Notes:

The fresh style of Sauvignon Blanc for which Geyser Peak is famous. The fruit flavors are abundant and the acidity bright and crisp. In this bottling, Geyser Peak aimed to capture the best of Sauvignon Blanc's identity by blending grassier elements (reminiscent of the Southern Hemisphere style) with citrus and mineral notes (most typical in the French style) and passion fruit and melon flavors (typical of the California New World style). As such, this Sauvignon Blanc offers authentic varietal character that can be appreciated by both the novice and the connoisseur.

About Geyser Peak Winery:

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.
