Tasting Notes

In a word svelte! This luxurious full-bodied wine immediately invites you in with fresh aromatics, then showcases a restrained power of great finesse and elegance, coupled with fine tannins and a lingering finish. Tastes of boysenberry, blackberry, violet, earth, clove, toast and cedarwood. Arguably the greatest Turkey Flat Estate Shiraz we have made!

“Barossa shiraz in very fine form. It’s a full-bodied wine but it’s also a wine of finesse. The fruit is served fresh, the tannin fine, the finish juicy and lingering. It tastes of boysenberry and blackberry, earth and toast, hay and cedarwood. It gets up and going quickly and then sings convincingly throughout. The key take-home here is the word ‘fresh’. It looks at the line and walks right down the middle of it, in full control, nothing overdone, nothing out of place.” Drink: 2024 – 2035+

“Deep red/purple colour. Smoky and meaty aromas, toasty-barrel influenced and peppery, the palate crisp and tight with a little tannin bitterness, which is quite pleasant. Tight, refined, taut and intense. Good concentration, but not overwrought. A superb wine with future potential.”
