Turnbull Viognier Oakville Skellenger Vineyard 2006
As the emergence of spring brings a fresh perspective on the world in which we live, so a first sniff of this spirited Rhone varietal invigorates the senses. A dreamy, creamy fruit cocktail with a halo of citrus blossom, it is truly the ultimate tropical alternative to Chardonnay. In the mouth, the experience is equally as lovely and appealing, the peach and citrus flavors creating the sensation of perfume on the palate. You will want not to swallow the wine too quickly, choosing instead to experience the warm, gentle texture of the wine at length. It's a wonderful thing to have a very special three acres of Viognier in Oakville, and a pleasure to please your senses with this full-flavored and versatile wine! Production: 608 cases (12 x 750ml)
At Turnbull Wine Cellars we craft our award-winning wine using fruit sourced from our five stellar estate vineyards in Oakville and Calistoga. This diversity of fruit sourcing and exemplary viticultural work allows our winemaking team the ability to create wines with distinctive flavors that capture the personality of each site. Soils vary from deeper alluvial fans on the valley floor to the shallow, volcanic and rocky structures of the hillsides.
