Six Horse, a sister brand, produced and bottled by Skinner Vineyards & Winery, pays homage to the original Skinner winery of the late 1800’s. Its purpose is to focus on legacy varietals once grown by James Skinner beginning in 1861 and throughout the Gold Rush Era. Our Legacy White blend features estate grown Trousseau Gris which was favored by James for its crisp and clean aromatics of white flowers with flavors of fresh peaches, honeysuckle, pear, and melon complimented by delicate spice and tropical fruit.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
At first sniff, sturdy tones of Crenshaw melon and honeysuckle are bolstered by the overwhelmingly seductive presence of Meyer lemon. On the palate, very easygoing - luscious but perky, with a continuation of citrus and white floral tones, and on the back end invites a most welcome chamomile vibe that sails on.
