James' Review

Larry Costa, a former hairdresser, embarked on winemaking as a hobby in 2002. The property, with its 1ha of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and merlot, is situated on the rolling countryside of One Tree Hill in the Mount Lofty Ranges. The business grew rapidly, with grenache, nebbiolo, sangiovese, petit verdot, chardonnay, semillon and sauvignon blanc purchased to supplement the estate-grown grapes. Michael Costa, Larry's son, has now joined his father as co-owner of the business, and has 16 vintages under his belt, mainly in the Barossa Valley, with Flying Winemaker stints in southern Italy and Provence. The red wines have won many medals over the years.

About this winery

The winemaking philosophy of Tenafeate Creek Wines is to represent the region's unique soil, climate and altitude. The red wines are sourced from low yielding vineyards within One Tree Hill and made in the tradition method, with the use of small open top fermentors, a Basket Press and the influence of minimal oak for maturation to enhance the essence of the vineyard.
