Large bottle turkey flat shiraz bottle

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:

2007 Vintage Tasting notes

The 2007 vintage saw some of the smallest yields on record. A warm and dry growing season gave the 2007 Shiraz rich aromas of ripe dark cherries, savoury spice and leather. Extended pre and post ferment maceration has given the wine youthful yet restrained tannin. The 100% French oak adds depth and length of flavour to the structure supporting a palate of blackberries, cedar and nutmeg. Cellar up to 10 years.

Reviews and Awards

Reviews for the 2007 Shiraz - 'Well defined', 'Deep and generous'

DAILY TELEGRAPH -Jeff Collerson, 17th November 2009

Turkey Flat vineyard was first planted in the Barossa in 1847. This has well defined shiraz fruit intensity on the nose, under-pinned by pepper, spice and a deft balance of acid and wood. In the mouth there is a dense, persistent fruit flavour with some warmth on the long, sweet fruit finish. Has deliciously chewy tannins surrounding chocolatey oak on the finish. Drink with a rare rib eye on the bone. Rating: 91 Points

CANBERRA TIMES - October 2009 A deep and generous, soft and savoury shiraz sourced in part from vines planted in 1847. AGE - September 2009 Turkey Flat has some of the oldest Shiraz vines in Australia, planted in 1847. Its small crops provide the basis for this classical Barossa red that combines restraint, concentration and complexity. Loganberry, sweet spice, plum and cedary oak aromas introduce a sumptuous, velvety wine of great length and fine texture. Rating: 5 Stars

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE - Issue 186, December 2009

The 2007 Shiraz is purple-coloured with a nose of spice box, game, lavender, and blueberry. On the palate it is a bit compressed and sinewy in the style of the vintage. The flavours are attractive and a few years of cellaring may fill it out. Rating: 88 Points


Bright colour; pure Barossa fruit, with blackberry, redcurrant and fruitcake on the bouquet; the abundant sweet fruit is offset by a savoury/tarry complexity that drives the palate to its ultimately long and tannin - textured finish. Rating: 95 Points
