    About Turkey Flat 

    With a history dating back to 1847, Turkey Flat is one of the most highly-regarded wineries in the famous Barossa Valley of South Australia.

    Tasting notes

    Sourced from 98 year old Grenache vines, the colour is deep red-purple, and the bouquet spicy and tinged with ginger and eucalyptus. It's rich and full on the palate, deep and very appealing, with density and persistence on the finish.

    Variety Description

    Grenache

    Grenache or Garnacha is one of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world. It ripens late, so it needs hot, dry conditions such as those found in Spain, where the grape probably originated, Sardinia, the south of France, and California. It is generally spicy, berry-flavoured and soft on the palate with a relatively high alcohol content. Wines made from Grenache tend to lack acid, tannin and color, and is usually blended with other varieties such as Syrah, Carignan, Tempranillo and Cinsaut.

    Region Description

    South Australia

    The South Australian wine industry is responsible for more than half the production of all Australian wine. South Australia has a vast diversity in geography and climate which allows the state to be able to produce a range of grape varieties-from the cool climate Riesling variety in the Clare Valley to the big, full bodied Shiraz wines of the Barossa Valley. Some of Australia's best-known wines like Penfolds Grange, Jacob's Creek, Yalumba and Henschke Hill of Grace are produced here, as well as many of Australia's mass-produced box wines.
