Description

Turkey Flat has more than 25 years’ experience in making Grenache. This older variety for South Australia has a natural home in the Barossa, although respect for the variety as a maker of fine wine has only recently been achieved. It has been an important part of the Turkey Flat range since 1992.
Mark Bulman has made Grenache his signature varietal after taking over full control of winemaking at Turkey Flat in 2010. Under his direction this remains respectful to their past tradition of making Grenache into a fine wine, while moving seamlessly into a more refined, contemporary style. The wine was fermented with 15% whole bunch with half the remaining stems also included in the ferment. Maturation took place in a combination of neutral oak Foudre and neutral oak puncheons.

Smells

Abundant red fruits seduce the taste buds, sun ripened strawberries, raspberries with complexing notes of crushed thyme, cedar and cinnamon adding another dimension. Great drinking now through 2026 with BBQ’ed meats or sticky pork ribs, yum…
