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.

This wine has a bouquet rich in red berry with a hint of spice. Red currants, plum and a hint of liquorish layer the palate. Rich, generous and structured. Try the classic pairing of shiraz and steak (cooked rare) or go for something new, like bitter, dark chocolate by itself, or added to a sauce for braised oxtail or
venison. Will develop well over the next 10 years.
