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.

2006 Vintage Tasting notes

A stunning single vineyard wine, the 2006 Grenache is elegant and perfumed, displaying aromas of fresh raspberries and dark cherries. The palate is full with stewed plum and anise overlain with warmth and peppery spices. Full of rich fruit whilst young, this wine will develop wonderful savoury and earthy characters with careful cellaring.

Reviews and Awards

Reviews for the 2006 Grenache - Serious and salacious at once

THE WINE FRONT – Campbell Mattinson, October 2007

Ripper drink. Something for everyone here. Big hit of sweet aniseed, but a dazzling array of hay, cedarwood, raisins and assertive, rasping tannin too. Would be great with the right food. Serious and salacious at once. Drink: 2008-2015. Rating: 91 Points.

ROBERT PARKER’S WINE ADVOCATE – Issue 173, October 2007

The 2006 Grenache was sourced from bush vines planted in 1921 and spent 12 months in seasoned French Oak. Medium/dark ruby-coloured, it has a superb perfume of pepper, earth, herbs, spice box, and black cherry. Supple-textured, it has a soft blanket of ripe tannin, layers of ripe fruit, excellent depth of flavour, and a long, fruit-filled finish. It will evolve for 4-6 years but can be enjoyed now with Provencal cuisine. Rating: 90 Points.
