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.

2002 Vintage Tasting notes

The 2002 vintage had ideal growing conditions, with long slow ripening of all varieties. Grenache, being the last variety picked, benefited from this extended ripening, giving deep colours and extremely rich flavours.

The 2002 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 and Awards

Reviews for the 2002 Grenache - will easily satisfy Grenache lovers

JAMES HALLIDAY’S, AUSTRALIAN WINE COMPANION 2006 Excellent purple; raspberry and redcurrant fruit, then a fine web of tannins for structure. Rating: 90 Points

THE WINE FRONT – Campbell Mattinson, January 2005 A big, powerful, alcoholic, mouthfilling wine with a load of flavour and a mass of appeal. Juicy, rich, cherry and licorice flavours build toward a flank of towing, fine-set tannins – adding flavour as well as texture. There are floral dynamics, as has become expected of the vintage, and it will easily satisfy grenache lovers. Rating : 92 Points
