Grenache has its origins in Spain, in particular the Northern Province of Aragon. A favourite in Southern Australia due to its ability to withstand extremes of heat, aridity and wind, it produces wines of exceptional quality, providing yields are kept low (around 2 tonnes/acre or approximately 32 hectolitres/hectare). The vines are traditionally spur pruned, in the goblet style of Southern France.

This wine is made from 90 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.

2005 proved to be a classic vintage with steady winter and spring rains providing good soil moisture levels. An extended ripening period with little rain enabled fruit was able to reach maturity without the risk of disease.

Grenache, being the last variety picked, benefited from the Indian summer, giving deep colours and extremely rich flavours.

Displays aromas of dark cherry, stewed plum and spice.

The palate is full with cherry chocolate and cassis flavours, overlain with
warmth and peppery spices.

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.
