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.

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/HA). The vines are traditionally spur pruned, in the goblet style of Southern France.

Grenache has been a very popular variety in the Barossa Valley and has traditionally been the mainstay of fortified winemaking. A major decline in the consumption of fortified wine styles during the 1960s and 1970s saw many Grenache vines removed. Renewed interest in the variety as a dry table wine has meant that the few old vines that do remain are now highly prized.
