Description:
The nose is floral with hints of five spice, dark plum, cherry and blackcurrant.

The palate is generous, displaying juicy sweet lifted fruits with a firm palate structure.

An elegant and restrained wine with a velvety finish.

The Butchers Block is a traditional Barossa blend made with grapes selected from the Turkey Flat vineyards, including some from the original old vine plantings. It is a blend of Shiraz, grenache and Mourvedre (Mataro), with the proportions of each variety varying from vintage to vintage.

55% Shiraz, 35% grenache and 10% Mourvedre.

Each varietal component of this wine was vinified separately in open fermenters and subsequently aged in both hogsheads and larger format French oak for approximately 18 months. The result is an intense warm, earthy full-bodied red with seamless oak integration.

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.
