Vinified from fruit grown to the historic, hundred and fifty year old Black Flat Block, an intensely varietal Cabernet Sauvignon, infused with the edifying eucalypt characters from thickets of old gums that grow along the creek bed. Planted to a cool, shaded shallow gully, the mixed alluvials and dark, fertile Biscay clays of Black Flat Block, yield a quality of Cabernet that's as eloquent as it is unique. Highly articulate with the characterful herbaceousness of an exquisite site, Turkey Flat offers the complexity and grace to match with caramelized foie gras or the finest wagyu.
The highly prized Black Flat Block Cabernet is grown on the banks of Bethany Creek in a small picturesque vineyard surrounded by graceful gum trees. The ancient vines are planted to a single parcel on the river flat near the cellar door where they thrive on deep soils without the need for irrigation. The intense, concentrated fruit have made Turkey Flat famous the world over. Full bodied and intense, a fine, even, structure and chalky ripe grape tannins, as enhanced by extended maceration on skins. Fermented at 18°C to 26°C for two to four weeks on skins, followed by transfer to a high proportion of new French oak barriques, for completion of malolactic and twenty months maturation. Alcohol 13.5%
TASTING NOTES
Deep black red hues. Aromatics of red and black currants, juniper berries and red pepper, cedar and subtle tobacco notes. A long, lingering palate of blackberries and red capsicum, wood spice and wild fennel, over a length of fine, firm tannins. Black Flat Block will evolve in the glass, forming minarets of remarkable chocolate Barossa fruit complexity.

About the Turkey Flat Winery
Turkey Flat is more than just a vineyard and home to one 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 1843. 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. Butchering developed into dairying, but the vineyards were always kept, until Peter, a fourth generation Schulz, and his wife, Christie, made the transition from grape growing to winemaking.
