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.
Every spring our winemaker, Mark Bulman, meticulously assesses the multitudes of Shiraz barrels and a select few are set aside for sparkling production. Rich in primary fruit and naturally low in tannin this Shiraz is perfect for this bottle-fermented sparkling wine. The Shiraz then goes into our solera system to join other base wines and aged in French casks. The base wine is then blended and tiraged in the traditional method. Following the secondary fermentation the wine is left to mature on lees for approximately one year before disgorgement and liquoring with our own Pedro Ximenez.
