ABOUT THE VINEYARD

It all began with Jerzy Turnau, who was a landowner and creator of agricultural education programs in the city of Lviv. History rendered the direct continuation of his work impossible, however one of his great-grandsons – Zbigniew Turnau – has run a sizable homestead for many years now, engaging in the cultivation of grains and rapeseed, and is assisted in this by his son Jacek. Its beneficial location, as well as a climate favorable to fruits, inevitably gave rise to the question: … perhaps wine?

This question was all the more logical, in view of the fact that one of the people with whom Zbigniew has worked for a number of years is orchardist Tomasz Kasicki, who – as of 2013 - is also an enologist.

 

Another one of Jerzy Turnau's numerous descendants is Grzegorz, who happened to inherit his great-grandfather's trait of artistic inclinations. The distant (geographically, as well as professionally) cousins were brought together many years ago by friendship, as well as a shared dream of returning to family traditions. One day, Zbigniew, Grzegorz, Tomasz and Jacek resolved to pool their energies in a combined effort, and thus the Turnau Vineyard came into being. Propagation, ongoing since 2009, and the renovation of a 19th-century farm building, made possible the creation of a modern vineyard with its own processing facilities. The fact that this is taking place in Poland – a country which isn't necessarily associated with wine – induced the owners to seek support among more experienced vintners, and the invitation to cooperate with the Turnau Vineyard was accepted by Frank Faust - a renowned winemaker based in the Rhineland. The vineyard is comprised of two parcels of land, totaling 17 hectares and planted mainly with strains of Solaris and Johanniter, along with Rondo and Regent. A well-equipped production facility, with its own laboratory, allow for meticulous oversight of every one of the wine's attributes, in every phase of its production. A wine-tasting salon is also being created in the processing building.

OUR WINES

Riesling 2015

Riesling retains its nobility, based on a high, crisp acidity and composition of green apple, lime and citrus scents. Its extraordinary character is underscored by a melon aroma, delicately emphasized with a trace of jasmine. Apple and grapefruit-like in taste, bold and refreshing, with potential for several years of development in the bottle. Riesling from the Turnau Vineyard has a fruity bouquet, while being a resolute wine which reflects the variety's strength and vitality.

Solaris 2015

Solaris owes its name to the sun, and makes use of its every ray for the creation of a full taste, extensive in its structure, as well as a thoroughly unique olfactory dimension. Peach, pear and honey aromas find their manifestation in the taste, where a distinctly grapefruit-esque acidity is offset by its maturity and fruity dryness. Solaris from the Turnau Vineyard is an intense and distinctive wine, with an exceptionally stable structure.

Seyval Blanc 2015

A surprise for lovers of this variety - Seyval Blanc from 2015 delights with its medium dryness.

The wine remains creamy within the lips, piquant and balanced, and the lessened residual sugar content is accentuated by a crisp, refreshing acidity. A French lightness reveals itself in the bouquet, with scents of orange, flowers and mango.

Seyval Blanc from the Turnau Vineyard is a very well equalized and durable semi-dry wine, with an interesting structure. It's a charming variety, which conveys the finest aspects of the Polish climate.

Hibernal 2015

A lucid wine with a light yellow hue and intense lustre.

The initial nose offers an intriguing scent, while the second discovers aromas of a floral fruity variety, along the lines of lemon, blackcurrant leaves, flowers and herbs. The scent lingering in an empty glass at the finish reveals the persistence of the bouquet. 

Sweetness dominates on the tongue, while harmonising with a pleasantly detectable tartness and adroitly embodied alcohol content. It gives a full and satiated feeling, allowing one to simply touch the wine and feel its presence. On the palate, the bouquet is strong and consistent, relative to the aromas, with a gentle after-taste of sweet dessert grapes.

Hibernal from the Turnau Vineyard is a semi-sweet, white wine with an enduring, delicate after-taste, ready for drinking or storage in an appropriate place for up to 3 years. Light, consistent on the nose and palate, and positively surprising with its wealth of aromas. It will charm those just setting out on the path towards becoming familiar with Polish wine, and amaze the more advanced.

Johanniter 2015

Lustrous, clear wine with a light straw colour.

Initially intense and fruity to the nose, upon turning the glass it offers a floral bouquet with green fruits, like apple or gooseberries. In the background, a gentle nectarine sweetness emerges on the palate. The after-taste is long and pleasant. A mild and agreeable wine, with enduring aromas, ready for long-term storage, as well as for immediate consumption.

Of the semi-sweet wines offered by the Turnau Vineyard, Johanniter is the highest in residual sugar content. Satisfying to experience, its sweetness can be casually savoured.

Rose 2014

Wine of a deep, elegant rose colour, with a glint.

The first nose entices positively, progressing smoothly to vivid scents of citrus, redcurrant, raspberries and pomegranates. On the palate, refreshment cloaked in a crisp acidity, balanced with a subtle level of residual sugar.

A unique balance of Polish fruits' briskness with the exotic warmth of citrus. 

Rosé from the Turnau Vineyard is an exceptional semi-dry wine, ideally satiating, with an amazing wealth of aromas.

Rose 2015

Wine of a deep, elegant rose color, with a luster. The bouquet evokes an association with the warmth of summer fruits, and is surprising in its intensity. Aromas of red currant, strawberry and wild strawberries are present here, and it composes itself within the lips with a citrus-like acidity, accompanied by an exotic tinge of pomegranate. Rosé from the Turnau Vineyard is light refreshment in the sun and an elegant consummation of an evening get-together, as well as a subtle companion for culinary journeys.

Rondo/Regent 2014

Wine of a purple hue with violet reflections, with depth and sheen.

The initial nose brings a delicate scent of the barrel, with raspberries. Shortly afterwards, a hint of bitter chocolate and paprika becomes apparent. On the palate it is consistent with its bouquet, decisive, full and harmonious. It leaves a long, velvety after-taste, and combines in itself the stateliness of a sombre red wine, with a light, fruity youthfulness.

Rondo/Regent from the Turnau Vineyard is an exactingly developed Polish red wine, apt to provide surprises at every stage of acquainting oneself with it.

Cabernet 2015

Cabernet with a slightly smoky beginning nurtures aromas of blackberry and green pepper, which precede a chili and pepper piquantness. In the flavor, a hint of chocolate is intertwined with an aftertaste of black currant and aronia, which constitutes a preface to the barrel tannins. Cabernet from the Turnau Vineyard harmoniously blends lively fruitiness with a distinct acidity and fresh tannins. This is a well-constructed wine, ready for several years of in-bottle maturation.

Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir is characterized by its light shade of red, which underscores its delicate and noble qualities. Cherry and strawberry, detectable in the bouquet, also play their role in forming a taste and fruitiness that subtly evolves within the lips, into tinges of barrel, evinced in the form of a coffee-caramel aftertaste. Well-rounded tannins complete the creation, to make Pinot Noir from the Turnau Vineyard balanced and full, while being aromatic and light at the same time.
