Turkey Flat Shiraz 2009

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

I haven t looked at the specs but it tastes as though there s a smidge more new oak in this release than there have been in the few years previous. There s some coconut spice cedarwood and toast - but before anyone is put off these flavours are gentle and well integrated. They made a positive contribution. It s otherwise blackberried and tarry and as well red berried. The aftertaste is all sweet dessicated fruits and fine tannin. It s a difficult wine to rate but it s clearly of above ave

Turkey Flat is more than just a vineyard and home of the best Barossa wines, it is a family business that forms a vital part of the region’s rich cultural history and heritage. 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 1847. 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.

Purple-black hue. This showcases an expressive creamy black fruit and black olive bouquet complemented by subtle notes of mint graphite and woodsmoke accents. Full bodied and complex this is very sophisticated with nicely appointed black cherry and blackberry notes. Creamy in texture and nicely balanced this seamless wine gently gains intensity towards the finish. Even the subtle tannins are coated with soft fruit. An additional breadth and richness appears with aeration. No way overwrough
