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.

2001 Vintage Tasting notes

2001 was the first vintage to be made in our own winery.

The 2001 Grenache displays aromas of dark cherry, plum and spice. The palate is full with cherry chocolate and plum flavours, overlain with warmth and peppery spices.

Reviews for the 2001 Grenache - juicy and supple with peppery spice

THE WINE FRONT – Campbell Mattinson, January 2005

A great drink, full of flavour, warmth, life and lift. Both the nose and palate are terrifically perfumed, floral and raspberried, with a punch of tannins and lots of fruity flesh to sink your teeth into. A good, chewy, warm wine. Rating: 89 Points

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH – FOOD & WINE with Jeff Collerson 6 August, 2003

Grapes from this came mainly off two bush vine blocks planted 80 and 100 years ago. Grenache is a good blender and is used that way in the Chateauneuf-du-pape reds from France. When made singly it often disappoints, but not in this case. It is juicy and supple with peppery spice.
