The Turkey Flat vineyards and winery are now situated on the historic Section One property in the centre of the Barossa. The Schulz family became owners of the Turkey Flat property in around 1865 and while they continued to tend the ancient vineyard, they also developed a thriving butchers business. The Turkey Flat Barossa Valley White blend is sourced from the Bethany and Stonewell regions of the Barossa. This wine is an even split of Marsanne and Roussanne. Picked early to hold freshness and preserve acidity, both varieties were whole bunch pressed to new and second use French Puncheons. Fermentation was completed on full solids to promote funk and layers of spice. The wine rested in oak over winter seeing regular battonage, which has added richness and length to the palate before bottling in Spring. Wine Front 93 points. “Barossa blend of Marsanne and Roussanne. Snuffed candle and the wax, honeysuckle, stonefruit, tangerine and spice. Here be flavour with crunch and texture, cool tang to the acidity with flint through wax and saltine cracker complexity. Layers of flavour, plenty of length, and all round good drinking to be had. Good fruit, sure, but inspired winemaking too.” Gary Walsh.
