Description:
Encounters with unblended Australian Mourvedre are rare. The origins of Mourvedre are almost certainly Spanish where it is often called Monastrell.

It is the principal black grape of the five appellations that cluster on Spain's Southeastern Mediterranean Coast.

A very late variety in both bud break and ripening season, the Barossa Valley is one of the few areas in Australia that can successfully ripen Mourvedre.

One of the original grapes grown in the Barossa Valley, Mourvedre thrives in the hot and dry conditions of a Barossa summer.

Until the late 1960s, however, the main French plantings of Mourvedre were in Provence, where it is the dominant grape in Bandol.

It is also used in the blends of Cotes du Rhone an Chateauneuf du Pape.

The wine produced from Mourvedre's small, sweet, thick-skinned berries tend to be deeply coloured, rich in spice, high in alcohol and tannin, gamey when young and full of fruit.

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.
