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 Turkey Flat Vineyard boasts some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world. Planted in 1847, these hard-working gnarled old vines are still producing fantastic grapes. They are dry grown with their roots extending metres into the soil in search of moisture. Much of the credit for the best Shiraz made in the Barossa is due to old vines such as these. The fact that these vines still exist is largely due to a far-sighted quarantine scheme, in which South Australia was spared the phylloxera outbreak which devastated the vineyards of Europe, America and subsequently parts of Australia in the late 1800’s.

Deep, dark and a very youthful purple in colour. Aromas of dark plums, mulberries and chocolate, graphite, charry oak and a whiff of menthol. Deep, dark and brooding black fruit flavours, there’s real power in the fruit, but the savoury tannin and lively acidity harness the power and shape the wine very nicely. Very good length and mouth-feel. It screams out for some protein. Date: Jul 2021; Alcohol: 14.1%; Price: $55.00; Drink: 2021-2036; Rating: 95 Points; Aaron Brasher; The Real Review
