Encounters with pure Mataro wines are rare. Mataro thrives in the hot and dry conditions of summer, a very late comer in budbreak and ripening, Barossa is one of the few parts of Australia with a clime which allows a full and complete ripening of Mataro grapes. Barossa Valley can also be proud as the original Australian home of ancient Mataro vineyards, some of the oldest in the world, established by Lutheran pioneers during early settlement. Turkey Flat's vines were amongst the first ever planted in Barossa Valley.
It is here at Turkey Flat, on the banks of Tanunda Creek in the Hundred of Moorooroo where wild bush turkeys once roamed, that Johann Friedrich August Fiedler planted his first vines in 1843. Grapes are macerated on skins over the course of a fortnight or more, inoculated to auspicious Mataro friendly yeasts and vinified at warmer temperatures. Treated to a spontaneous malolactic fermentation in barrel, followed by an extended term of maturation in a combination of new and prior use French oak hogsheads and puncheons.

About Turkey Flat Wines
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.
