“It’s toasty, malty, beautifully blackberried and rich, the deliciousness factor from start to finish (very) high. To boot, it has both the inherent structure and balance to keep it at a high level for a good long time. This is Turkey Flat Shiraz in exactly the form you’d like to see it. Plum, kirsch, cream and cocoa characters are all nothing if not seductive. Licks of oak are perfectly applied. Fruit is dark and satisfying. Redcurrant and spice notes are there, but as bit players. It’s Barossa Shiraz, fighting fit.”
Deep, dark colour with a trace of purple; the bouquet is sweetly ripe and rich, with lush fruit, pepper and clove spice and a hint of star anise. The 2015 Shiraz is full-bodied and ample with generous fruit sweetness backed up by savoury, supple tannins.
The Turkey Flat Vineyard boasts some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world. Planted in 1847, these hard-working gnarled old vines are still producing fantastic grapes. They are dry grown with their roots extending metres into
the soil in search of moisture. This shiraz is a result of a very intricate blending process. After each parcel of fruit is individually vilified & aged for 20 months
in specially selected French oak barrels, 33% of which are new, the final blend is created with careful consideration to allow the wine to cellar gracefully, retaining its freshness and balance for many years.
