An extraordinary Shiraz from cult producers in the Barossa. The treasured phelloxera-free vines that feed this increasingly regarded label -- which got 98 points from Halliday and was just awarded Langton's Australian Red Wine of the Year -- date back as far as 1847. This exceptional fruit was delivered to a generous ripeness then respected by a traditional and relatively gentle winemaking. This select blend is a wine of great presence and structure but also harmony and finesse. Already immensely satisfying from decanter, the Turkey Flat will improve superbly with age.

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

98/100 Halliday's Wine Companion, James Halliday

"From vines dating back to 1847, hand-picked, open-fermented with 10% whole bunches, matured in French oak (40% new) for 18 months. This beautifully crafted wine has power and presence, and a purity of taste and structure. The black fruits have waves and crosscurrents of flavour and texture, the finish long and balanced."
