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.

2010 Vintage Tasting notes

The perfect weather conditions of warm days, cool nights and no rain during ripening and harvest of 2010, resulted in some of the best varietal expressions we have seen in Grenache in many years. Rich in colour and tannin structure, displaying primary fruit characters of fresh raspberry and plum.

A balanced and elegant wine with a palate of sweet spice and clove. More savoury characters of fennel and black pepper give way to a lingering fine tannin finish. This wine will age gracefully with careful cellaring of up to 10 years.

Reviews and Awards

Pick of the 2010's - Grenache

Turkey Flat's rich Barossa reds are invariably outstanding, but pick of the 2010s is this once humdrum variety. Enticing spicy oak and plum aromas show earthy development with long, silky tannins on the full palate Jeff Collerson - Daily Telegraph, Sydney, August 2012

James Halliday on the 2010 Grenache

Light but bright colour; made from the 90-year-old estate plantings, it is unmistakably varietal, but has more savoury tannins than most of its Barossa Valley compatriots. Letting these tannins loosen their grip would be a very good idea. Rating 93/100
