Turkey Flat Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Excellent Langtons Classification. It was at Turkey Flat, on the banks of Tanunda Creek whence bush turkeys once roamed, that pioneer Silesian settler Johann Friedrich August Fiedler planted the first Shiraz during the 1840s. The maturing vines on Section One, in the Hundred of Moorooroo, were bought in 1865 by Gottlieb Ernst Schulz, a successful butcher who established a thriving business among the vines. The Schulz family are still there and up to a fifth of the grapes in today's Turkey Flat Shiraz are picked off the gnarled old vines of 1847.

Turkey Flat boasts some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world. These living heirlooms yield wines that are floral, elegant and well structured. Grapes were harvested between March and April at complete ripeness and healthy levels of natural sugar concentration. Inoculated to bespoke strains of yeast and fermented at temperatures of 18°C to 26°C, juices remain on skins for up to three weeks. Cold soaking and extended macerations achieve a firm tannin structure, ensuring that the wine will continue to evolve handsomely. Turkey Flat completes full malolactic in barrel, followed by eighteen months maturation under a combination of new and prior use French oak hogsheads.
Deep purple colour. Black cherry, liquorice and savoury spice bouquet. Bright and generous, concentrated fruit, youthful yet restrained tannins in support, refreshed by lively acidity. French oak adds depth and length of flavour, supporting a palate of blackberries, cedar and nutmeg. A complex and restrained wine which benefits from decanting to reveal great purity of fruit.
