Tinhorn Creek Chardonnay 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaToasted oak, rich and ripe red apple and vanilla dominate this Black Sage Bench chardonnay, the richest from Tinhorn in recent memory and perhaps reflective of the warm 2015 vintage. Partial whole cluster, partial stainless ferment, partial French and American oak ferment, partial wild yeast all adds up to a disjointed, clumsy and warm wine at this youthful stage. A promising lemon peel zing persists throughout, though I'm hoping for less working, and more freshness, in the future.Tasted: 04 November 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 19.49 winery direct, private retail, restaurants Producer: Tinhorn Creek VineyardsDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
