Tasting Note

2017 Vintage Tasting notes

A layered & thought-provoking blend inspired by the whites of the Rhone Valley. The underlying rich medley of fresh & roasted stone fruit is topped with a toasty note of spice-laced crumb. Balanced with a restrained zesty hit of ginger on the lingering finish.

The Turkey Flat Barossa Valley White blend is sourced from the Bethany and Stonewell regions of the Barossa. Traditional to Turkey Flat style the Marsanne was picked early and pressed lightly. The Viognier was handpicked, chilled, crushed and saw 48 hours on skins and then pressed lightly. The Roussanne was a little riper when handpicked and subsequently whole bunch pressed.

“Ravishing in all the textural and characterful complexity of whole bunch pressing, extended skin contact and partial new oak maturation, this is a blend that upholds the character of its three varieties with magnificent precision. To achieve all this with crunch, zest, vibrancy and persistence takes wizardry indeed. The result is one of the best warm climate white blends going.”
Tyson Stelzer.



“Barossa blend of marsanne, viognier and roussanne. It feels very young and has a simplicity to it as a result, but the wine’s juicy flow and (excellent) length suggest that its best days are yet ahead of it. Pear drops, nectarine, spice and a trace of honey. It’s tasty and refreshing but it will offer more in time.”

“A blend of Marsanne, Viognier and Rousanne that is sooo smooth for such a young wine. It has beautiful aromas with a hint of honeysuckle. The palate is unctuous with great rounded smooth flavours and a lingering sophisticated finish. This wine is perfect to be enjoyed right now. A VERY CLASSY ACT.”
