Tim Atkin MW, May 2019


If you can’t afford the two top Catena Chardonnays, this cheaper cuvée from Gualtallary
and Villa Bastías isn’t far behind it in terms of quality. Subtle, elegant and showing a hint of tropical fruit from botrytis, it finishes fresh, taut and spicy.

About TINHORN CREEK

TINHORN CREEK

Established by the Shaunessy and Oldfield families on the South Okanagan’s legendary Golden Mile Bench in 1993, Tinhorn Creek is a very special winegrowing project, comprising 150 acres of spectacular vineyards in two distinct areas, one on either side of the valley. The two vineyards have significantly different soils, exposures, and microclimates. This is a big advantage, providing the opportunity to cultivate a wide range of grape varieties.

John Schreiner, November 2019


This wine was aged 18 months in French oak (35% new). The blend is 88% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. Generous in texture, the wine has aromas and favours of black cherry, plum and fig, with an extended finish.

Gismondi on Wine, August 2019


The 2015 blend is a complete departure from last year’s cabernet franc dominated blend. The ‘15 mix is 36/29/19/14/2 cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec, cabernet franc and petit verdot. It’s slightly tighter with less texture and more linear notes, but it’s still satisfying in the mouth. The tannins are well managed. The entry is a mix of rich, dark, black and blue fruits that coat the palate along with a dollop of soft French oak. More Napa than Bordeaux which should be attractive to a large crowd of red wine lovers - drink or hold mid-term.

Descorchados, November 2018


Ripe and substantial fruit notes give off a slight sweetness with roasted flavours. This chardonnay manages to obtain balance thanks to juicy acidity which enhances the wine's flavours. A creamy wine that is perfect for smoked fish. *translated from Spanish*
