A great price discount on this stylish blend from one of Barossa's "cult" producers. This proper juice comes partly from their legendary old vines, lying in Barossa vineyards which date back to 1847 and are among the oldest vines in commercial use anywhere in the world. In the glass it offers the up-front juiciness and body of a ripe GSM, but it is not showy - instead boasting an integrated and 'sinewy' core of great depth and focus. Succulent yet serious, this is a hell of a deal.

Its Origins

Turkey Flat is an Australian winery located in Tanunda, in the middle of South Australia's Barossa Valley wine-growing region. It is described by wine expert Oz Clarke as one of the "cult wines" of Australia. With more than 40% of its production dedicated to rosés, Turkey Flat has been considered a leader in the recent "rosé revival" trend of the early 21st century. The history of Turkey Flat wines began in 1847 when Johann Frederick August Fiedler planted Shiraz vines near Bethany Creek. The vines planted in 1847 are some of the oldest vines used for commercial wine production today and believed to be among the world's oldest vines that have been authenticated.

What The Critics Say

92/100 and no.3 of 21 South Australian Shiraz tasted, Huon Hooke

"Deep red/purple, bright colour, with a walnut, dry spice, dusty aroma. It's medium to full-bodied and softly textured, with good fleshiness and abundant supple tannins. There is density and richness here, with some licorice notes and abundant alcohol without hotness. A generously proportioned shiraz-based red. Delicious wine, and quite decadent. Outstanding value for money."

100 Best Australian Wines, Mathew Jukes

"Butchers Block used to be a forward-drinking SGM/Cotes-du-Rhone style wine with open fruit and minimal tannin. In the last few years it has clearly invested in a gym membership (note to self) and this has not resulted, thankfully, in a Muscle Mary physique, but in more tone and sinew that I expected. Today Butchers Block is ninja-fit with elevated aromatics and punchier tannins. There is a lot of wine here and I dearly hope that we will see it sold in many more outlets."

Campbell Mattinson

"It’s right in the zone. It’s an attractive blend of red and black berried fruit flavours, teamed beautifully with anise, leather and those dried, almost rusty spice characters so common in Barossa reds. It’s balanced, it’s ripe, it’s warm but not excessively so. Or not distractingly so. In short, it drinks like a charm, and has plenty of regional character."
