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.
2018 Review: Predominantly sourced from estate vines planted over 100 years ago. It's been treated with total respect in the winery, matured in used oak without any additions other than SO2. Extraordinary value for a wine with decades ahead. Drink to: 2043; Price: $40.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2019; Alcohol: 15%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
