94 Points - Huon Hooke
One of the Barossa Valley's finest wineries, Turkey Flat have been in recent red hot form even by their lofty standards. While Turkey Flat is renowned for their red wines, their Barossa Valley White is fast gaining a big following.
The 2022 Turkey Flat Barossa White is a Rhone-style blend of Marsanne and Roussanne, sourced from Turkey Flat's Bethany and Stonewell vineyards in the Barossa. It sees a spectrum of vinification including while bunch pressing, extended skin contact and partial new oak maturation.
Rich and multi-layered on the nose with honeydew and fresh citrus combining beautifully with hints of creamy nougat, gun smoke and ginger spice. The palate is full of tension, with stone fruit and lemon cured hemmed in by a tight acid drive and long textured finish.
"94 Points. A blend of 55% marsanne and 45% roussanne, which underwent extended skin contact and partial new oak maturation. With a light yellow hue, it has a very smoky bouquet combining barrel and reductive aromas with spices and a hint of smoked chicken, the palate multi-layered and entertaining, medium bodied and soft-but-dry in its balance. A lovely wine with a really engaging set of flavours, and a long and satisfying follow-through. (Screwcap). 12.5% alc. Ageing: now to 2029 Food: deboned, barbecued spatchcock with lots of garlic and olive oil"- Huon Hooke, The Real Review.
"92/100. A Rhône-inspired white blend of marsanne and roussanne from the Turkey Flat vineyards in Bethany and Stone Well; whole-bunch pressed with some skin contact and a portion aged in new oak. Pale straw with some intriguing struck flint and cordite notes layered above the juicy white peach, lemon and apple fruit base. Hints of nougat, toasted almonds, crème fraîche, white flowers and ginger complete the picture. Dry with a lovely textural component, a minerally acid line and excellent clarity on the finish. Great complex, zesty drinking. 12.5% alc. Drink by: 2027. Screwcap"- Dave Brookes, winecompanion.com.au.
