Mourvedre Barossa South Australia
Established in the 1840s and in continuous ownership by the Schulz family since 1870, Turkey Flat at Tanunda was a habitat of wild Australian Bustards, a favourite bush food of locals and early settlers. Younger parcels of Shiraz are selected for spice and lift, a fresher and more layered version of Barossa Valley, a component of whole bunches are added for structure and seasoned, sent to a selection of well seasoned, pre loved Turkey Flat casks, to encourage the vital fruit characters to sing.
Bright cherry red. Florals of violet, glace fruits, peppered plums and cherry ripe. Raspberries to the fore, a palate of blueberries and white pepper spice, a seamless finish of ripe fleshy stonefruits and dark currants on a length of lively licorice tannins. Simply a modern, fresh and fruit driven wine, a lighter, brighter style of Shiraz for forward drinking alongside grills and meaty Al fresco fare.
