Eos Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This Sauvignon Blanc is made in a ripe style which is in accordance with our Paso Robles climate. Great care is taken in the vineyard to expose clusters to just the right levels of sunlight; we wish to develop the ripe melon and citrus flavors, but still protect the berries from sunburn damage. Gentle pressing, a long, cold fermentation with selected aromatic yeast strains, and early bottling all contribute to the freshness and vibrant fruit character of the wine. 2% Muscat Blanc in the fermentation brings a level of white floral interest.

Originally named for the Goddess of the Dawn in ancient Greek mythology, Eos Estate Winery uses state-of-the-art, eco-friendly technology to harness the sun’s energy to craft premium wines. Visits to the spacious, Italianate hospitality center, perched on a hilltop amid rose gardens in the heart of Paso Robles wine country, blend wine tasting with solar-powered farming and winemaking operations. In 2008, Eos launched a $5 million project to install a cutting-edge solar system to power the winery and tasting room operations. More than two acres of ground-mounted tracking solar arrays now supply all electrical power for the winery and tasting room, and additional roof-mounted solar arrays provide all water-heating needs. Eos is the largest winery on California's Central Coast to run completely on alternative energy. Guided tours of the solar power system are available to visitors upon request. Other investments have resulted in extensive winery improvements, including a super-high-tech wine lab, and the replanting of several vineyard blocks. We also recruited a new Director of Winemaking, Nathan Carlson, lured by our commitment to sustainable agriculture and the use of solar energy to provide energy needs. A native of rural Minnesota and a key member of winemaking teams in Central California and Oregon's Dundee Hills, Carlson has more than a decade of winemaking experience, and is known as an expert in regional climate and weather patterns. A cypress-lined drive leads up to the hospitality center, where visitors can taste their way through a complimentary flight of wines. Eos encourages guests to sit outdoors amid the lush gardens, shaded by palm, olive, and oak trees, and enjoy the scenic views of the sun-splashed vineyards and rolling hills of this eco-friendly estate. Tastings: Reserve tasting $10.00, Estate tasting $5.00 The Wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Late Harvest Moscato, Malbec, Merlot, Muscat Canelli, Petite Sirah, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Zinfandel Port Specialty: Estate-grown, block-designate Petite Sirah Of Special Note: Picnic area.

Wine Tasting NotesTantalizing aromas of kiwi and pineapple open our delightful Sauvignon Blanc. Melon and papaya greet the palate and slide into a long mineral finish.



Tasting Notes:

Honeysuckle & orange peel aromas. Green fig, sweet melon & ripe citrus fruit character on the palate. Crisp, but balanced and full.
