Large bottle turkey flat grenache bottle

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.

1995 Vintage Tasting notes

Wine writers and consumers have been particularly excited about Turkey Flat Grenache Noir since its release in 1992. SA writer Philip White’s description summed it up: “zippy and fresh in a European way; a lunch wine for hardline lunch timers. It has a fleshy, plummy, sweet and spicy palate with a deceptive wallop of alcohol.”

The 1995 vintage is even more interesting. The product of a drier than normal season in the Barossa, the 75 year old bush vines worked hard to deliver beautifully concentrated fruit and this has translated into a wine with intense flavour, spiciness and a pronounced tannin structure. This tannin not only provides elegance and length but will contribute to greater longevity than previous vintages of this unique wine.
