Large bottle 2015 turkey flat shiraz btm

The Turkey Flat Vineyard boasts some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world. Planted in 1847, these hard-working gnarled old vines are still producing fantastic grapes. They are dry grown with their roots extending metres into the soil in search of moisture.

Much of the credit for the best Shiraz made in the Barossa is due to old vines such as these. The fact that these vines still exist is largely due to a far-sighted quarantine scheme, in which South Australia was spared the phylloxera outbreak which devastated the vineyards of Europe, America and subsequently parts of Australia in the late 1800’s.

This shiraz is a result of a very intricate blending process. After each parcel of fruit is individually vinified & aged in specially selected French oak barrels, the final blend is created with careful consideration to upholding its reputation for cellaring gracefully, retaining its freshness and balance for many years.

The Turkey Flat Shiraz is a proud holder of a Barossa Trust Mark. The Barossa Trust Mark is a mark of aspirational standard set by the Barossa region. It provides you with a guarantee and assurance of quality.

It is founded on five value pillars:

Origin - our sense of place

Integrity - our sense of purpose

Quality - our sense of ambition

Environment - our sense of responsibility

Community - our sense of belonging

Reviews and Awards

"One of the greatest Turkey Flat releases yet"

2016 Turkey Flat Shiraz – 98 Points - 5 Stars - Special Value

“From a backbone of some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world, planted in 1847 on Bethany Road, this is one of the greatest Turkey Flat releases yet. Mark Bulman has taken this estate to new heights and this wine is the barometer. It's deep in colour yet vibrant, loaded with dense black fruits and black pepper, framed in finely structured yet commanding tannins. Patience.”
