2013 Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc

September 18, 2014 - Norman Bentley
#33-14-PIE

The folks at Geyser Peak have had a consistent winner with their Sauvignon Blanc for several years in a row now, with scores always in the high eighties to low nineties, and the 2013 edition is no exception. This is a good hot weather wine, sourced from grapes primarily from California's North Coast, and fermented in stainless steel for a clean and crisp finish. The style is typical of California Sauvignon Blanc, and pairs well with a variety of foods.

The nose is fragrant with fresh fruit and citrus notes that proclaim a bright and delightful anticipation of the abundant flavors to come. The taste is apples and melon underscored by a nice citrus kiss of lemon, and a trace of grapefruit. The finish has a touch of vanilla and is slightly dry, with a hint of the grassy nature of Sauvignon Blanc at the end. As mentioned before, this is a clean and crisp wine with an alcohol content of 12%.

The Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc would accompany a variety foods from oysters on the half shell to chicken salad. We enjoyed it with a fillet of grilled salmon and a fresh garden salad. Norm's score is 88.

Score: 88

Price: $10 - $14
