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.

Shiraz, grenache and mataro sourced from some of the 150yo vines on the estate. The price is extremely low for a wine with such history. Red, blue and black berry fruits are woven together by a gently savoury film of tannins and subtle oak justifying the choice to drink it now or much later. Drink to: 2027; Price: $21.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2018; Alcohol: 14.1%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
It's amazing that you can buy a red wine partly grown on some of the oldest vines on the planet at this price. If it was twice the price, I'd still be recommending it. Made with the classic blend of grenache, shiraz and mataro grapes, it's all about liquorice, raspberry, leather and woodsy spice notes. It's mid-weight in the best ways; it's a beauty; Campbell Mattinson, Wine Companion Magazine
