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.

Total disassociation from all previous Turkey Flat labels is hard to fathom. It's an entry point wine, but that still doesn't answer the question. And it's not as if the quality of this reflects adversely against that of its peers. It's complex, relaxed, medium-bodied, its black fruits playing the game.

This has 15% whole bunch and no new oak. It’s bright, flavoursome, packed with boysenberry and fresh blackberry, spice and blue flowers. Medium bodied, cool in acidity and emery tannin, some meat in with the fresh dark berry fruit, certainly the spice and energy is here, and the finish is clean, lightly chalky, with a smattering of dried herb and pepper in the aftertaste. It’s a wonderful expression of modern Barossa Shiraz. Tasted: Oct 19; Alcohol: 13.7%; Price: $25; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2019 - 2029; Rated: 93 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
