Tinhorn Creek Vineyards 2015 Oldfield Reserve Chardonnay (Golden Mile Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Upon release, direct from winery here
Date Tasted: May 18th, 2017
Tasting Notes: A 'big' Chardonnay, bursting with ripe, melon and tropical fruits, buttery-brioche, French vanilla cream and persistent citrus aromas and flavours. Barrel fermented and aged in oak for 18 months prior to bottling, this wine is plump on the entry with dominant oak and malolactic characters, yet, finishes smooth, almost lean, thanks to the fine, lemon-drop acidity and light, mineral notes. Spice and a hint of caramelized apple linger through to the next sip. Drink now-2020.
