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.
Simply a modern, fresh and fruit-driven wine. A lighter, brighter style of Shiraz designed for drinking young.
Source blocks were selected for spice and lift, representing a fresher and more layered version of ‘Barossa Valley shiraz’. 15% whole bunch used to increase spice and structure, with 100% old oak allowing fruit to take the fore.
There is a distinct savoury character to the wine, undoubtedly the result of 15% whole bunches in the ferment. It's a positive piece of the jigsaw of the bouquet and palate alike, and lends support to the early drinking of a wine only just hitting medium-bodied territory. The freshness of the mouthfeel is a by-product of modest alcohol.
