The Turkey Flat Vineyard boasts some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world. Planted in 1847, these hard-working gnarled old vines are still producing fantastic grapes. They are dry grown with their roots extending metres into the soil in search of moisture.

Much of the credit for the best Shiraz made in the Barossa is due to old vines such as these. The fact that these vines still exist is largely due to a far-sighted quarantine scheme, in which South Australia was spared the phylloxera outbreak which devastated the vineyards of Europe, America and subsequently parts of Australia in the late 1800’s.
This shiraz is a result of a very intricate blending process. After each parcel of fruit is individually vinified & aged in specially selected French oak barrels, the final blend is created with careful consideration to upholding its reputation for cellaring gracefully, retaining its freshness and balance for many years.
The Turkey Flat Shiraz is a proud holder of a Barossa Trust Mark. The Barossa Trust Mark is a mark of aspirational standard set by the Barossa region. It provides you with a guarantee and assurance of quality.
Appellation: Barossa Valley, SA
- 96 Points - James Halliday
"A classic wine, seriously underpriced, coming predominantly from the 1847 estate plantings. Superb structure and mouthfeel, with blackberry fruit, and seamless French oak in the background. Drink: 2023"
94 Points - Huon Hooke
"Good concentration yet also excellent drinkability. This is a powerful but not over-the-top, thickly textured red with prune-like flavours and lashings of supple tannins. Responds well to breathing. Cellaring 1-10years."
