    The Turnbull Sauvignon Blanc 2023 is a clear testament to the winery’s dedication to excellence, crafted under the expert hands of winemaker Peter Heitz. This wine, born from the heart of Oakville in Napa Valley, is a perfect representation of the region’s rich winemaking heritage and the Turnbull estate’s commitment to quality from vine to bottle.

    Peter Heitz, who is deeply rooted in the tradition of Napa Valley winemaking, considers this Sauvignon Blanc one of his favorite projects. He describes it as a wine that’s “nervous enough to be interesting, crisp enough to quench, and delicious enough to thrill.” This reflects not just the wine’s character but also the passion and meticulous attention to detail that goes into its creation.

    The 2023 vintage, affectionately dubbed the “Tale of Two Vintages” by local winemakers, presented unique challenges and opportunities. Despite extreme weather conditions, the skilled team at Turnbull, led by Heitz, managed to harvest grapes that produced a wine notable for its perfect acidity, wonderful freshness, and exquisite fruit-forward aromatics. These efforts were supported by the vineyard’s strategic location and sustainable farming practices, ensuring the highest quality of fruit is used.

    This Sauvignon Blanc hails from two distinct vineyards – the Turnbull Home Vineyard and the famed Fortuna Vineyard. The combination of these sites lends the wine unparalleled textural pleasure and vibrant fruit nuances. The wine undergoes a meticulous winemaking process, including fermentation in both stainless steel and concrete tanks, followed by six months of aging on the lees with weekly bâtonnage. This careful process enhances the wine’s crisp flavors, gorgeous aromatics, and luxurious mouthfeel.

    Upon tasting, the Turnbull Sauvignon Blanc 2023 presents a kaleidoscope of aromas, including white stone fruit blossoms, passion fruit, and a subtle hint of wet flint, creating an inviting bouquet that beckons for a sip. The palate is greeted with a soft entry, where crisp acidity and fresh flavors of white peaches, lemon zest, and mineral notes dance harmoniously. The wine’s structure and lift are impeccable, making every sip a refreshing experience.

    At 13.0% alcohol by volume, this 100% Sauvignon Blanc wine is a true representation of the Oakville appellation’s capacity to produce wines of exceptional balance, structure, and depth. With grapes sourced from 68% Turnbull Home Vineyard and 32% Fortuna Vineyard, the 2023 Sauvignon Blanc is not just a wine but a story of a vintage, crafted with integrity and without compromise.

    In summary, the Turnbull Sauvignon Blanc 2023 is more than just a wine; it’s a journey through the heart of Napa Valley’s Oakville region, guided by the expert craftsmanship of Peter Heitz. It’s a wine that promises to engage, refresh, and delight, making it a perfect companion for those moments that call for something truly special. Whether you’re a seasoned wine enthusiast or exploring the world of wines, this Sauvignon Blanc is poised to offer an unforgettable experience.
