Wine Scores, April 2014


Lemony, finesse, quaffable. An organic traditional sparkling made by a family owned winery from the classic cava varieties: Parallada, Macabeo and Xarel-lo. It offers impressive complexity at this price - notes of lemons, melon, pear and guava are rounded out with wild flowers and nutty, toasted pastries. The palate follows suit with lemony-quince flavours, honey and lanolin and an attractive tangy bitter finish. Nice finesse and richness with a lovely, creamy mousse.

James Suckling, June 2017


Aromas of graphite and dark fruit with hints of spice and tea bag. Mushroom too. Full body, yet refined and beautifully textured. Love the low oak impression. Made in mostly concrete eggs. Fantastic.

Tim Atkin, March 2017


The inclusion of a growing proportion of fruit from cooler Marchigüe is bringing more freshness and vivacity to this well made Cabernet Sauvignon. Dense, concentrated yet refreshing, with excellent structure, well handled oak, sculpted tannins and classic blackcurrant fruit.

James Suckling, July 2016


Bright and aromatic with rose, blueberry and currant character. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Such finesse and beauty. Impressive for the vintage.

* Suggested retail price

Deep brick red in colour. The Legacy bouquet delivers alluring aromas of raspberries, fennel, and rosemary. Black licorice and cassis greet the palate, while lush tannins of marzipan and cocoa develop with each sip. A soft yet structured mouthfeel is complimented with notes of blackberries and leather on the finish. This age-worthy Bordeaux-inspired blend will become more expressive with time.

Rick VanSickle, September 2017


After 23 years of crafting wines from the estate’s Diamondback Vineyard on Black Sage Bench and Tinhorn Creek Vineyard on the Golden Mile Bench, Tinhorn finally has its flagship red wine: The Creek. And it was well worth waiting for. It’s a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 9% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot that was pressed and racked to 40% new French and Hungarian oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and ageing. The wines were racked to tank for blending in spring 2016, and then returned to barrel for a further eight months, for a total of 24 months of barrel ageing. It’s about sheer elegance on the nose, a sum of its parts, showing blackberries, cherries, black licorice, graphite, cassis and toasted oak spice and vanilla. It shows its teeth on the palate with a firm foundation of ripe tannins and generous fruit, spice, campfire smoke and earth. It is but a baby at this point and needs time to all calm down to fully appreciate the beauty. Wait for it, it is the new flagship wine, after all.
