2016 Eos Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Ynez Valley
Our 2016 Santa Ynez Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a singularly gorgeous bottling. It opens with fragrant notes of citrus and guava followed by flavors of grapefruit pineapple. The palate has a refreshing, vibrant acidity accented by a touch of grassiness on the finish. This wine is effervescent, fruit-forward and crisp.

2016 produced average yields and high quality fruit. Few frost spells in winter and little to no rain led to an early bud break at the end of February. A very good fruit set in spring was followed by a warm summer that kept the vines roaring through veraison and maturation. We harvested the Sauvignon Blanc from August 25th - October 13th, 2016.
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.
