Explosive aromas brimming with lemon, lime and citrus blossom mingle with gooseberry and passion fruit to proudly proclaim this wine's varietal.
A generous, fruit-forward palate shows juicy citrus flavors of lime, grapefruit and tangerine, balanced by bright, crisp acidity. The pleasant finish persists on the palate with great length of flavor.
This is an easy-sipping, eminently drinkable wine that doesn't sacrifice complexity or varietal character in its quest to be flat-out enjoyable. The perfect aperitif, this wine also makes an ideal partner to oysters and nearly any shellfish, as well as salads and light fish and chicken dishes.

Pale greenish/straw color. Intensely grassy, earthy, vegetal, with subtle hints of green pepper and cucumber. Flavor profile echoes the bouquet, in particular, with the reflection of the green pepper. Delicate, lithe. Great Value
|Wine maker notes
|The fresh style of Sauvignon Blanc for which Geyser Peak is famous is best enjoyed in the first 18 months after release when the fruit flavors are most abundant and the acidity bright and crisp.
