This is a bright, zesty wine made in what is quickly becoming a classic California Pinot Grigio style. The nose shows notes of lemon, lemon zest, citrus blossom, and a hint of spice. The palate is crisp and bright with citrus flavors and elegant minerality. Wonderful on its own as an aperitif, this wine also pairs beautifully with fresh oysters on the half shell, as well as salads, light fish and chicken dishes.
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.
