Turnbull Sauvignon Blanc
Turnbull Wine Cellars is a small, family-owned, multi-generation business with 145 acres of vineyards within the Oakville Viticultural Appellation. The grapes are first picked over three passes. Next, the whole cluster fruit is lightly pressed to preserve freshness and fruit aromatics. The resulting Sauvignon Blanc is then fermented first in terracotta amphora, and finally aged in seasoned French oak and acacia barrels, and a small stainless steel tank. The wine rests on the lees for four months, with weekly battonage and the final product sees delicate aromas of white stone fruit blossoms, lychee, and a hint of wet flint. It displays a soft entry, with crisp acidity and a thrilling structural core.
