Large bottle 2016 turkey flat barossa valley white

" Brilliant wine, this - the sums of parts makes for a more complex, interesting, delicious wine experience. High-toned floral characters, whiffs of apricot and walnut kernel, quince. Slippery textured, medium weight, drags out long and fine in the palate. Yes."

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.

2016 Vintage Tasting notes

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.

2016 Barossa Valley White - superb!

Delicate elegant aromatics, smooth rich palate with a hint of honeysuckle, and a smooth dry lingering finish. This is a very well rounded, silky wine that is a joy to drink. SUPERB
