Winemaker's Notes:

Honeydew melon, citrus notes, ripe pear and crisp apple characters. The final over-ripe pick of Sauvignon Blanc is gently crushed and soaked on skins over-night to enhance the tropical characters of guava and passion fruit. Bright and forward aromatics, delicate viscosity and crisp texture.
My Notes:

About Turnbull:

In the Spring of 1993 California publisher, Patrick O'Dell, purchased Johnson Turnbull Vineyards and renamed the property Turnbull Wine Cellars. The remodeling and expansion of the facility has been completed. In addition, the wines have gone through change due to the inclusion of fruit from additional vineyards purchased by Patrick. Turnbull Wine Cellars has 145 acres of vineyards within the Oakville Viticultural Appellation representing the diverse range of microclimates and terroirs within this fabled grape-growing center of Napa Valley.
