Tinhorn Creek Chardonnay 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaI can’t say enough about what has been going on at Tinhorn Creek since Peller took over, or more importantly, the acquisition of winemaker Ross Wise, who is in charge of BC winemaking as well as his regular duties at Black Hills, and the arrival of winemaker Leandro Nosal, via Checkmate and The Red Barn. The 2021 Chardonnay is simply fun to drink. For aficionados, it has some lees and mineral notes to hold your interest, and for the casual consumer, there is honey, apricots, and lemons. Finally, for those who simply like chardonnay, this is a juicy, tasty package that won’t disappoint.Tasted: 05 May 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
