Turkey Flat Butchers Block GSM
Barossa
Available by the dozen
The Turkey Flat vineyards are unique, in that the estate can trace their first plantings back to early settlement in the 1840s. The site was acquired by Gottlieb Ernst Schulz in 1865, a successful butcher who established a thriving business. His descendants are still there to this day, working amongst the vines. Butchers Block is fashioned to a crowd pleasing style, Mourvèdre provides the backbone, Shiraz adds flavour, Grenache brings rustic spice and dark morello fruit. Balance is essential, each grape plays a role, yet nothing competes for your attention.

The original butcher's shop employed by Gottlieb Ernst Schulz is now the Turkey Flat cellar door. It is a place where the Turkey Flat team, assemble to bring together the various components of a wine, they give each part an opportunity to speak, to articulate and define its contribution to the greater whole. Parcels of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourverdre are separately handled, crushed into a mix of seasoned oak vessels and treated to a term of cold soak for optimal extraction of flavour, colour and tannin. Upon completion of ferments, batches are rested for spontaneous malolactic, followed by a term of eighteen months in French oak hogsheads and larger format oak vats before the final assemblage.
 
Bright garnet red. Good fruit on the nose, black berries and plum, spiced olives, bay leaf and savouryness. A fully aromatic, subtly structured wine, Shiraz providing a backbone of solid tannins and luscious depth of flavour, Grenache contributes a dash of spice and cherry sweetness, whilst Mourvedre adds extra layers to the tannin, as well as a measure of fragrance and an element of funk. A match to braised game with herbs, olive and tomato.

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.
Turkey Flat Grenache
Barossa
Available in cartons of six
The hundred year old Turkey Flat Grenache parcels yield harvests of the most amazing concentration. Rows of traditionally spur pruned vines, husbanded in the goblet style of Vallée du Rhône, produce around two tonnes per acre, translating into intensely flavoured vintages of remarkable eloquence. Aged in a judiciously toasted selection of seasoned and new French oaks barrels, the wine achieves astonishing balance between tannin and fruit, herbaceousness and spice, all due to determining the ideal day of harvest, selective hand picking and careful sorting of the berries.

Turkey Flat Mataro
Barossa
Available by the dozen
Encounters with pure Mataro wines are rare. Mataro thrives in the hot and dry conditions of summer, a very late comer in budbreak and ripening, Barossa is one of the few parts of Australia with a clime which allows a full and complete ripening of Mataro grapes. Barossa Valley can also be proud as the original Australian home of ancient Mataro vineyards, some of the oldest in the world, established by Lutheran pioneers during early settlement. Turkey Flat's vines were amongst the first ever planted in Barossa Valley.

Turkey Flat Shiraz
Barossa
Available in cases of 6
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.

Turkey Flat The Ancestor Shiraz
Barossa
Established 1847 by Johann August Frederick Fiedler, much of the credit for the finest Shiraz in the world is due to old vines such as Turkey Flat. Dry grown and gnarled, their roots extend metres into the soil in search of moisture. That they still exist is largely due to a far sighted quarantine scheme, as South Australia was spared the phylloxera outbreak which devastated vineyards around the world in the late 1800s. After five generations of stewardship by the Schulz family, a small parcel of fruit from the original 1847 vines is bottled as a superior vintage release.

The historic Turkey Flat property, located within Section One of the Hundred of Moorooroo, is planted to rich, alluvial soils, adjacent to Bethany Creek at Tanunda. The site was sold to Gottlieb Ernst Schulz in 1865, a successful butcher who established a thriving retail business among the vines. Butchering developed into dairying, but the vineyards were always kept, until Peter and Christie Schulz made the transition from fruit growing to winemaking. The distinctive script on the Ancestor label is drafted from the 1888 Schulz family butchers ledger, discovered while restoring the Turkey Flat property in 1992.

It was here, on the banks of Tanunda Creek where bush turkeys once roamed, that pioneer Silesian settler Johann Friedrich August Fiedler planted the first Shiraz vines in 1843. His vines flourished and the land Section One, in the Hundred of Moorooroo was bought in 1865 by Gottlieb Ernst Schulz, a successful butcher who established a thriving retail business among the vines. Butchering developed into dairying, but the vineyards were always kept, until Peter, a fourth generation Schulz, and his wife, Christie, made the transition from grape growing to winemaking.

Turkey Flat

They transformed the historic bluestone butchers shop into the cellar door and heart of their Turkey Flat wine business, and made sure that the vines that Fiedler planted so long ago, now gnarled and twisted, are still a vital part of the process. And with good reason, for it is the intense, concentrated fruit from these ancient vines that set Turkey Flat wines apart and have made them sought after the world over.

Turkey Flat is the local name for the vineyard property and is believed to be so named by the original settlers in the late1840s after the large flocks of native bush turkeys (Australian Bustard) in the area. Turkey Flat wines are made from four individual vineyard estates, all owned by Peter and Christie Schulz. The original Section One vineyard has the Shiraz, Grenache and small parcels of Mataro and Semillon.

The highly regarded Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on the banks of the Bethany Creek in a small picturesque vineyard surrounded by ancient gum trees. Turkey Flat's Ros is made from the Menge Road estate Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Dolcetto vines, all grown specifically for this purpose. The Butchers Block blend of Mataro, Shiraz and Grenache is sourced from the Stonewell estate. This vineyard is planted on a unique combination of red-brown earth soils (terra rosa) on a unique underlying limestone base. Stonewell is also planted to Marsanne.

Most of the Turkey Flat vineyards survive only on natural rainfall, and where supplementary water is applied this is done so in very small amounts, and only to maintain healthy leaves and not to increase production. The vineyard yields vary from ten tonne/hectare at Ros to a mean two tonne/hectare for Shiraz.

"The establishment date of Turkey Flat is given as 1990 but it might equally well have been 1870 (or thereabouts), when the Schulz family purchased the Turkey Flat vineyard, or 1847, when the vineyard was first planted to the very old shiraz which still grows there today alongside 8 ha of equally old grenache. Plantings have since expanded significantly, now (in total) comprising shiraz (24 ha), grenache (10.5 ha), cabernet sauvignon (4.7 ha), mataro (3.7 ha) marsanne (2.2 ha), viognier (1 ha), roussanne (0.6 ha) and dolcetto (0.5 ha)." -James Halliday

"The Barossa’s winemaking history started in the mid 1840s when the first commercial vineyards were planted by August Fielder, the Aldenhoven brothers and Johann Gramp (from which sprang Orlando). Shiraz vines planted in 1847, adjacent to Jacobs Creek just outside Tanunda, are still productive today. Although probably used originally to make a sweet port style, today’s tiny yields make a wonderful dry Shiraz under Peter and Christie Schulz’s Turkey Flat label." -Chris Shanahan.com

All of the Turkey Flat wines are made in the Bethany Road winery using traditional open fermenters. Barrel fermentation is followed by maturation in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads and barriques. Climate controlled barrel hall estate bottling further enhances the quality and delicacy of Turkey Flat wines.
