Product description

What started with a couple of barrels in the basement of a house and a few acres of vines has grown into a thriving winery; attracting a group of talented people committed to making outstanding wines in the south Okanagan. The founding families’ vision continues to live on in every aspect of Tinhorn Creek today. They hold the same values close to their hearts, to be responsible stewards for the land, their people, their community and the future. The strength of their team is what got them here, and it’s that same team who lead this next leg of the journey. Through their ongoing commitment to that original vision they pay homage to their roots and the ideals on which Tinhorn Creek was built.

The 2019 vintage provided a vibrant, natural acidity with fresh, elegant and ripe flavours from their South Okanagan vineyards. The grapes are harvested, destemmed and gently crushed to release the juice and colour from the skins. The grape juice or must is pumped over twice a day until fermentation using natural yeast begins to take place. A steady fermentation helps preserve the fruit flavours. Once fermentation is complete, the juice is drained off the skins or called 'free run' juice. The wine is placed into a variety of French, Hungarian and American Oak barrels where it will age for 12 months. The barrels are stored in their temperature and humidity-controlled barrel cellar until bottling. On the nose, there is lots of ripe red fruit mingled with a hint of black pepper.
