95 Points - James Halliday
One of the Barossa Valley's finest wineries, Turkey Flat have been in recent red hot form even by their lofty standards. The Turkey Flat Butchers Block Red has established itself as one of Australia's most reliable and best value red wines; the 2017 vintage release is one of the most impressive in recent memory.
A classic Barossa blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro, the 2017 Turkey Flat Butchers Block Red is medium-bodied Barossa red wine with loads of red and black berries fruit flavours, accompanied by layers of spice, dark and cassis notes. Soft and delicious, this offers the great drinkability and value for money this wine has become famous for.
"95 Points. Shiraz, grenache and mataro sourced from some of the 150yo vines on the estate. The price is extremely low for a wine with such history. Red, blue and black berry fruits are woven together by a gently savoury film of tannins and subtle oak justifying the choice to drink it now or much later. 14.1% alc. Drink By: 2027 Screwcap"- James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.
"It's amazing that you can buy a red wine partly grown on some of the oldest vines on the planet at this price. If it was twice the price, I'd still be recommending it. Made with the classic blend of grenache, shiraz and mataro grapes, it's all about liquorice, raspberry, leather and woodsy spice notes. It's mid-weight in the best ways; it's a beauty"- Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Magazine, Aug/ Sep 2019.
Turkey Flat are proud custodians of an unbroken line of commitment to Barossa viticulture and wine that stretches back five generations to the planting of their first ‘ancestor’ vines in 1847. A family-owned estate that plays a vital role in the Barossa Valley’s rich cultural heritage, Christie Schulz is the fourth generation of the Schulz family to become caretaker of this remarkable estate.
Turkey Flat consistently deliver wines of great integrity that are consistent expression of Barossa terroir; wines of elegance, grace and refined power. This includes one of Australia's finest Rose's, the ever-popular Butchers Block Red (a delicious blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre), while the Turkey Flat Shiraz is a benchmark example of Barossa Valley Shiraz.
Far from hanging their hats on the incredible history of their site, Turkey Flat has a strong evolutionary bent, striving to be innovative and engaging while showcasing the serious fun that imbues the culture of this famous Barossa winery.
