Winemaker's Notes

The Easton Sauvignon Blanc is made from grapes grown at the Monarch Mine Vineyard, overlooking the American River Canyon at 2,300 feet, near the town of Foresthill in Placer County. The four acres of vineyard at this site are planted to two different selections of Sauvignon Blanc: clone #1 and the Musque clone. Cold fermented this wine in a stainless steel tank and then age it for nine months in neutral French oak barrels on lees before bottling it in late May. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation and therefore retains its' delicious crispness. The enchanting fruit flavors suggest pineapple and melon and are complimented by a nice creamy mouth feel. The wine finishes with a wonderful minerality that speaks of the vineyard site. It is the perfect foil for all seafood and absolutely satisfying as an aperitif.

Critical Acclaim

"Easton’s classic Sauvignon Blanc stands out year in and year out and this is no exception. Complex in texture and flavors of lime and tropical papaya, it’s marked by minerality and a pronounced crispness. It calls out to be served as an apéritif or to enjoy while cooking. "
