95 points and 'South Africa 2018 Wines of the Year,' Tim Atkin, MW: "Ever a one to make bold statements, Eben Sadie calls Tinta Barocca “the best grape in the Swartland”. This is certainly a brilliant red, bristling with attitude and daring you not to enjoy it. Grippy, serious and made to age, with plum and damson fruit and tarry, savoury tannins. A red to tuck away for a while. 2022-2030. (2018)"

93 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2017 Treinspoor is pure Tinta Barocca, which Eben opined is the most exciting grape at the moment, matured for one year in foudres. It has a very well defined bouquet, almost Barolo-like, with touches of dried flowers and rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and wonderfully balanced, creating real tension from start to finish and featuring touches of bay leaf and tea leaf toward the poised but sustained finish. Superb. (Aug 2018)"
