Graeme Melton and a mate were travelling across South Australia in 1973, their EH Holden was in dire need of maintenance and Graeme took up casual work at a passing winery. The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre. He returned to the Barossa, at a time when old vineyard fruit was made into flagon Port and growers were destroying their historic sites in return for government grants. Charlie emabarked on a crusade to conserve and restore the ancient vines,.. Melton makes a mean mourvedre»
At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty Mediterranean braises or char grilled rib...

Turkey Flat Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Excellent Langtons Classification. It was at Turkey Flat, on the banks of Tanunda Creek, where 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.
