2012 Shiraz - a top Turkey Flat release

Turkey Flat has slowly, slowly become a more sophisticated wine over the years. It’s the same same, but different. This release has it where it’s been wanting to be.

It’s not impenetrable, it’s not monolithic, it’s not simple or necessarily easy to categorise. For a Barossa shiraz in 2014, these are all positives. It’s ripe and licoricey but it has nutty, herbal notes too and quite a deal of them. Smoky oak plays a role, but it’s easy to miss. It’s clean, juicy and well-fruited, but it has a sinewy aspect. It’s medium-bodied with fine-grained, fruit-filled tannin. It benefits from being given time to breathe in the glass. In all, it’s a top Turkey Flat release.

Welcome to the old Schulz family butchers shop, now the heart of Turkey Flat and the home of our cellar door. This wonderful old bluestone building is tucked away on the edge of Tanunda, completely surrounded by our historic vineyards, dating back to 1847.

Gnarly vines, elegant lawns and impressive, old gum trees surround our modern winery and provide a stunning backdrop to experience our wines and hear our story.

We love to see visitors and can easily be found off the Bethany Road just south of Tanunda, but even if you can’t make a visit in person, we hope you can get a feel for our wines and what we are doing through this site.
