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.
