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.

1996 Vintage Tasting notes

The 1996 growing season provided outstanding conditions and is noted as one of the best vintage’s in the Barossa’s history.

It displays concentrated dark cherries and plums, overlain with warmth ad peppery spices. Smooth lingering tannins balance the richness of the fruit and invite drinking now, or after 5 –7 years cellaring.

Reviews and Awards

1996 Grenache - achieves a sort of grandeur

WINE SPECTATOR– Jan 31, 1998

Ripe, concentrated, bursting with spicy cherry and tobacco flavours, it’s intense and rich enough to achieve a sort of grandeur. Impressive now, best from 1999. 1,000 cases made. Rating: 90 Points
