Turkey Flat Butchers Block Red 2015

51% Shiraz
38% Grenache
11% Mataro

A thrilling wine that leaps from the glass with instant rapport. Layers of spice, dark plum, cassis and berry fruit adorn the palate - pleasantly held by an oaky embrace. To be shared, to be enjoyed.

Like medals at a children’s sporting event, when we blend a wine we like each parcel to have recognition, its own chance to feel proud of its contribution to the team. Here, each varietal is vinified & aged individually in French oak barrels before the final blending process. Shiraz adds the generous mouthfeel, Grenache the spice and cherry-like sweetness and Mataro the backbone, savoury edge and fragrance. Balance is crucial, each varietal’s contribution is evident, yet nothing competes for your attention.

Named in honour of our family’s original use for the building that now houses our Cellar Door, the Butchers Block Red is a structured, fruit-driven & medium bodied wine. A crowd-pleasing style of wine that offers excellent value for money.

The Butchers Block is a traditional Barossa blend made with grapes selected from the Turkey Flat vineyards, including some from the original old vine plantings. It is a blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvédre (Mataro), with the proportions of each variety varying from vintage to vintage. A dry winter and growin season led to the earliest vintage on record. Though quick the vintage yielded robust flavours and colours.

A thrilling wine that leaps from the glass with instant rapport. Layers of spice, dark plum, cassis and berry fruit adorn the palate - pleasantly held by an oaky embrace. To be shared, to be enjoyed.

Like medals at a children’s sporting event, when we blend a wine we like each parcel to have recognition, its own chance to feel proud of its contribution to the team. Here, each varietal is vinified & aged individually in French oak barrels before the final blending process. Shiraz adds the generous mouthfeel, Grenache the spice and cherry-like sweetness and Mataro the backbone, savoury edge and fragrance. Balance is crucial, each varietal’s contribution is evident, yet nothing competes for your attention.

Enjoy with warm, comforting meals just like Mum makes - spaghetti bolognaise, braises or lamb cutlets. Or funk it up a notch with braised rabbit or hare with tomato & olives. Winery Notes

Reviews & Accolades

"Given the provenance, is freakish value, its quality simply underlining that fact. It has purple and black fruits sewn together by firm tannins that add to the length of the wine (and its structure). I wouldn't hesitate to cellar the wine for 15+ years."
94 Points - James Halliday - 2018 Halliday Wine Companion

"Butchers Block used to be a forward-drinking SGM/Cotes-du-Rhone style wine with open fruit and minimal tannin. In the last few years it has clearly invested in a gym membership (note to self) and this has not resulted, thankfully, in a Muscle Mary physique, but in more tone and sinew that I expected. Today Butchers Block is ninja-fit with elevated aromatics and punchier tannins. There is a lot of wine here and I dearly hope that we will see it sold in many more outlets."
Matthew Jukes - 100 Best Australian Wines 2017/18

"Given their track record of reliability and quality, Turkey Flat's wines offer good value across the board: their excellent varietal grenache and mataro (two of the Barossa's best) sit around $30, as does their superb fortified Pedro Ximènez. But the Butchers Block - a blend of shiraz, grenache and mataro - is particularly well priced, especially so as it's from the generously-flavoured 2015 vintage: lots of squishy black bramble fruit, held in check by lovely supple tannins."
Max Allen - 29th March 2017

"Deep red/purple, bright colour, with a walnut, dry spice, dusty aroma. It's medium to full-bodied and softly textured, with good fleshiness and abundant supple tannins. There is density and richness here, with some licorice notes and abundant alcohol without hotness. A generously proportioned shiraz-based red. Delicious wine, and quite decadent. Outstanding value for money."
Huon Hooke - 1st November 2016
