Description:
Inspired by the rare and luscious vin de paille of France's Rhone Valley, this is the fifth release of this sweet white, made from 100% Marsanne grapes. In both France and Italy a traditional method of obtaining concentrated sugars and flavours is to lay harvested grapes on straw mats where they are left in the sun to dehydrate. We adopt a similar method, spreading out the bunches on our old apricot drying trays for up to six weeks before gently crushing and basket pressing. The unfermented juice is transferred into 112 litre French Oak barrels, where the wine will slowly ferment and mature until bottling.

A pale straw yellow colour. This wine shows lime syrup, crushed brazil nuts and oak derived sandalwood aromatics. The palate is complex and initially sweet with rich flavours of ripe pear, spice and honeysuckle, balanced with a delicate acidity allowing a dry finish.

Sweet wines of this style are not only suited to traditional desserts; served as an aperitif it will drink well with savoury dishes & tapas such as green olives stuffed with white anchovies, Manchego with quince paste or try with salt cod fritters.

Producer Information

Turkey Flat is more than just a vineyard and home of the best Barossa wines, it is a family business that forms a vital part of the region's rich cultural history and heritage.

It was here, on the banks of Tanunda Creek where bush turkeys once roamed, that pioneer Salesian settler Johann Friedrich August Fiedler planted the first Shiraz vines in 1843. His vines flourished and the land, Section One, in the Hundred of Moorooroo was bought in 1865 by Gottlieb Ernst Schulz, a successful butcher who established a thriving retail business among the vines.

Butchering developed into dairying, but the vineyards were always kept, until Peter, a fourth generation Schulz, and his wife, Christie, made the transition from grape growing to winemaking. They transformed the historic bluestone butchers shop into the cellar door and heart of their Turkey Flat wine business, and made sure that the vines that Fiedler planted so long ago, now gnarled and twisted, are still a vital part of the process.

And with good reason, for it is the intense, concentrated fruit from these ancient vines that set Turkey Flat wines apart and have made them sought after the world over.
