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.

2017 Vintage Tasting notes

A contemporary Grenache displaying beautiful floral and spiced aromatics, bright fruit that fills out into more complex spiced and savoury characteristics, and strong tannins that will ensure longevity. The wine was fermented with 15% whole bunch with half the remaining stems also included in the ferment. Maturation took place in a combination of neutral oak Foudre and neutral oak puncheons.

Reviews and Awards

Turkey Flat Grenache Wins Trophy

It has been a great 12 months for Turkey Flat, with our Grenache once again in the spotlight. This time it’s our 2017 Grenache being awarded the trophy for best ‘Other Red Single Varieties’ at The National Wine Show of Australia in Canberra.

This award comes off the back of receiving a clean sweep of gold medals throughout the year on the wine show circuit, including 96 Points from James Halliday. Halliday also recently selected our 2017 Grenache in his ‘Top 100 Wines of the Year’ in addition to our 2017 Butchers Block Red & 2016 Shiraz.
