The Turkey Flat vineyards and winery are now situated on the historic Section One property in the centre of the Barossa. The Schulz family became owners of the Turkey Flat property in around 1865 and while they continued to tend the ancient vineyard, they also developed a thriving butchers business.

The Butchers Block is a traditional Barossa blend made with grapes selected from the Turkey Flat vineyards, including some from the original old vine plantings. It is a blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvédre (Mataro), with the proportions of each variety varying from vintage to vintage.

The 2015 Butchers Block Red has an attractive colour & uplifting bouquet of dark plums, rose & sweet spice. The Shiraz brings a classic element of spice and blackcurrant to the palate followed by Grenache’s typical raspberry, cherry combination. Mataro is the spine of the blend, adding supportive tannin & fragrance.

51% shiraz, 38% grenache, 11% mataro from 15-17yo vines. Given the provenance, is freakish value, its quality simply underlying the that fact. It has purple and black fruits sewn together by firm tannins that add to the length of the wine (and its structure). I wouldn't hesitate to cellar the wine for 15+ years). Screwcap. 14.8% alc. To 2030. Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; James Halliday Wine Companion

Deep red/purple, bright colour, with a walnut, dry spice, dusty aroma. It's medium to full-bodied and softly textured, with good fleshiness and abundant supple tannins. There is density and richness here, with some licorice notes and abundant alcohol without hotness. A generously proportioned shiraz-based red. Delicious wine, and quite decadent. Outstanding value for money. Rating: 92 Points; Huon Hooke

Given their track record of reliability and quality, Turkey Flat's wines offer good value across the board; their excellent varietal grenache and mataro (two of the Barossa's best) sit around $30, as does their superb fortified Pedro Ximenez. But the Butcher's Block - a blend of shiraz, grenache and mataro - is particularly well-priced, especially so as it's from the generously- flavoured 2015 vintage; lots of squishy black bramble fruit, held in check by lovely supple tannins.
