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.
Grenache has its origins in Spain and is particularly well suited to the Barossa climate due to its ability to withstand extremes of heat, aridity and wind. The fruit for this wine was predominantly sourced from 98 year old Grenache vines grown on the Turkey Flat Vineyard. These old vines produce fantastically concentrated fruit which translates into a style of Grenache for which Turkey Flat has become famous. The wine is one of power, balance and is exceptionally varietal. The nose delivers black fruit and a subtle hint of bracken. The palate follows with a rich body of fruit and layered space, bound by a deep structure and modest oak integration.

Predominantly sourced from vines over 100yo on the estate vineyard adjacent to the winery. Deep colour; the flavours of red cherry, raspberry and a dash of plum come coursing through on the long ride of superfine tannins to the finish. The same source and style as Turkey Flat's Jimmy Watson winner.

If you enjoyed your red wines with bright, juicy, jubey fruit then this new release from Barossa Valley producer Turkey Flat will be right up your funky laneway. Grenache thrives in the Barossa but in recent times it has been used more for fortified wines than table wines. This is made largely from vines that are close to 100 years old, providing fruit intensity and plushness in the mouth, aided by toasty oak. Pair this dark, down and dirty red with a traditional roast lamb. Winsor Dobbin
