Tinhorn Creek Vineyards Chardonnay 2009
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Tinhorn Creek Vineyards Chardonnay 2009 Wine Review
Nicely balanced Chardonnay with fresh green apple and lime zest aromas. Judicious use of oak weaves its lightly smoky way through this voluptuous wine. 4.4/5 Chardonnay food pairings: dungeness crab, grilled halibut, oysters, rotisserie chicken, roast turkey.

|Only 23% of the 2009 Chardonnay spent 2 months in new French oak and was stirred|
twice weekly. This allowed part of the Chardonnay to have contact with the lees and
develop a silkly mouth feel. The remainder of the Chardonnay was aged in stainless
steel tanks to develop fruit characteristics. After 2 months they were blended together before bottling in March 2010.
