Johann Fiedler moved to Bethany in 1843. It was here on the banks of Tanunda Creek where he planted an experimental garden, orchard & 72 varieties of grapes to see what would thrive best. Fiedler, a muse to generations of Barossa viticulturists and winemakers, inspired the planting of three white varietals; Marsanne, Viognier & Roussanne.
A layered and thought provoking blend inspired by the whites of the Rhone Valley. The underlying rich medley of fresh and roasted stone fruit is topped with a toasty note of spice-laced crumb. Balanced with a restrained, zesty hit of ginger on the lingering finish.
Traditional to the Turkey Flat style the Marsanne was picked early and pressed lightly, then this year fermented in barrel. The Roussanne was a little riper when hand picked and subsequently was treated whole bunch. Viognier was hand picked, chilled, crushed and saw 48 hours on skins before gentle pressing.
