Large bottle 2016 turkey flat barossa valley white

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, Roussanne & Viognier.

2017 Vintage Tasting notes

A layered & thought-provoking blend inspired by the whites of the Rhone Valley. The underlying rich medley of fresh & 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.

The Turkey Flat Barossa Valley White blend is sourced from the Bethany and Stonewell regions of the Barossa. Traditional to Turkey Flat style the Marsanne was picked early and pressed lightly. The Viognier was handpicked, chilled, crushed and saw 48 hours on skins and then pressed lightly. The Roussanne was a little riper when handpicked and subsequently whole bunch pressed.

Reviews and Awards

Ravishing in all the Textural & Characterful Complexity

2017 Barossa Valley White - 93 Points

“Ravishing in all the textural and characterful complexity of whole bunch pressing, extended skin contact and partial new oak maturation, this is a blend that upholds the character of its three varieties with magnificent precision. To achieve all this with crunch, zest, vibrancy and persistence takes wizardry indeed. The result is one of the best warm climate white blends going.”

2017 Barossa Valley White

“Barossa blend of marsanne, viognier and roussanne.

It feels very young and has a simplicity to it as a result, but the wine’s juicy flow and (excellent) length suggest that its best days are yet ahead of it. Pear drops, nectarine, spice and a trace of honey. It’s tasty and refreshing but it will offer more in time.”

Drink: 2019 - 2023
