"This tastes bone dry, and it offers acidity that's so clean and racy, it makes your mouth feel like it's shining. The flavors of limes, lemons, hay, white pepper and vanilla are delightful."

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.
