Turkey Flat has more than 25 years experience in making Grenache. This older variety for South Australia has a natural home in the Barossa, although respect for the variety as a maker of fine wine has only recently been achieved. It has been an important part of the Turkey Flat range since 1992.
Mark Bulman has made Grenache his signature varietal after taking over full control of winemaking at Turkey Flat in 2010. Under his direction this remains respectful to our past tradition of making Grenache into a fine wine, while moving seamlessly into a more refined, contemporary style.
This is the second release of the Grenache Noir that Turkey Flat Vineyards has produced. This wine was made at Rockford Winery in the Barossa Valley.
The 1993 Grenache Noir was described by The Advertiser’s Philip White as a “slippery, seductive miracle – a major work’.
The very old yielding bush vines, gravelly soil, and maturation in oak are the ingredients needed to produce a full bodied style such as this.
Turkey Flat Grenache Noir is a food wine, ideally suited to full flavoured dishes of all kinds.
