Chardonnay, 2022

Shipped and sold by Tinhorn Creek Vineyards

2022 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 13.3% ALC/VOL
Critic's Rating 92 pts

The golden hue of our Chardonnay shows the barrel fermentation components and gentle ageing of this wine. The nose is full of spice, clove and nutmeg before fresh nectarine and lemon zest giving it a delicate lift. The palate is rich but still very bright and refreshing with golden apple crispness, yellow grapefruit, before finishing with a buttery macadamia nut cookie, or almond biscotti note.
