Drink of the Week – Glass of Tinhorn Creek Vineyards Oldfield Series 2Bench Rosé 2011

Yesterday evening local wine aficionados, industry and media mingled at the Vancouver Urban Winery for ‘Wine Tasting with a Social Twist’ hosted by Tinhorn Creek Vineyards. Guests gathered to tweet (using the hashtag #SocialTwist), meet and enjoy a complete blind tasting of eight Tinhorn wines, with a chance of winning a one-year ‘Crush Club’ membership, 2-night stay in the Tinhorn guesthouse or tickets to SLOAN at the 2012 Canadian Concert Series. Once the ballots were entered, Tinhorn Winemaker Sandra Oldfield unveiled the wines, guests savoured light bites provided by the winery’s award-winning Miradoro Restaurant and were invited to resample their favourite wines.

This week’s Drink of the Week is a glass of the Tinhorn Creek Vineyards Oldfield Series 2Bench Rosé, one of the wines included in the blind tasting. The rosé is a dry wine, light salmon pink in colour with notes of strawberry and a hint of black pepper. Served perfectly on its own or with light summer dishes!
