2015 Eos Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Ynez Valley
Over the past two decades the Santa Ynez Valley has emerged as one of the most celebrated winegrowing regions in California. Formed by the Purisima Hills and San Rafael Mountains to the north and the Santa Ynez Mountains to the south, it is the largest AVA in Santa Barbara County. The cool, western portion of the Santa Ynez Valley is well suited to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir while the warmer eastern section is home to aromatic whites such as Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, and Sauvignon Blanc as well as bold reds including Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
2015 was another dry year in the Santa Ynez Valley. An extremely mild winter led to an early bud break. There were very few frost days as our warm and mild weather defined the rest of the growing season. The fruit was harvested during September through October which was a couple weeks ahead of schedule; however, quality was high across the board.
The first impressions of our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc is that of Meyer lemon, tropical fruit and guava. Its refreshing palate of grapefruit, pineapple and melon give way to a touch of grassiness and acidity on the finish. This wine is aromatic, vibrant and crisp.
