Shiraz / Barossa / SouthAustralia
Excellent Langtons Classification. It was at Turkey Flat, on the banks of Tanunda Creek, where bush turkeys once roamed, that pioneer Silesian settler Johann Friedrich August Fiedler planted the first Shiraz during the 1840s. The maturing vines on Section One, in the Hundred of Moorooroo, were bought in 1865 by Gottlieb Ernst Schulz, a successful butcher who established a thriving business among the vines. The Schulz family are still there and up to a fifth of the grapes in today's Turkey Flat Shiraz are picked off the gnarled old vines of 1847.

Shiraz / Barossa / SouthAustralia
Excellent Langtons Classification. Much of the credit for the best Shiraz to come out of Barossa Valley is due to old vines such as Turkey Flat. Dry grown, their roots extend metres into the soil in search of moisture. That they still exist is largely due to a far sighted quarantine scheme, as South Australia was spared the phylloxera outbreak which devastated the vineyards of Europe, America and subsequently parts of Australia in the late 1800s. Planted in 1847, the precious, gnarled old vines contribute the backbone of fruit for Turkey Flat Shiraz.

Mourvedre / Barossa / SouthAustralia
Encounters with pure varietal Mourvedre wines are rare. The grapes origin is almost certainly Spanish, where it is called Monastrell, the principal black varietal of the five appellations around Spain's southeast, an essential component of the great growths from Cotes du Rhone and Chateauneuf du Pape. Barossa Valley can be proud as the home of ancient Mourverdre vineyards, some of the oldest in the world, established by Lutheran pioneers during early settlement. Turkey Flat's vines were amongst the first ever established in Barossa Valley.

CabernetSauv / Barossa / SouthAustralia
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.

Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre / Barossa / SouthAustralia
The Turkey Flat vineyards are unique, in that the estate can trace her first plantings back to early settlement in the 1840s. The site was acquired by Gottlieb Ernst Schulz in 1865, a successful butcher who established a thriving business. His descendants are still there to this day, working amongst the vines. Butchers Block is fashioned to a crowd pleasing style, Mourvèdre provides the backbone, Shiraz adds flavour, Grenache brings rustic spice and dark morello fruit. Balance is essential, each grape plays a role, yet nothing competes for your attention.
 
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.

 Turkey Flat

They transformed the historic bluestone butchers shop into the cellar door and heart of their Turkey Flat wine business, and made sure that the vines that Fiedler planted so long ago, now gnarled and twisted, are still a vital part of the process. And with good reason, for it is the intense, concentrated fruit from these ancient vines that set Turkey Flat wines apart and have made them sought after the world over.

Turkey Flat is the local name for the vineyard property and is believed to be so named by the original settlers in the late1840s after the large flocks of native bush turkeys (Australian Bustard) in the area. Turkey Flat wines are made from four individual vineyard estates, all owned by Peter and Christie Schulz. The original Section One vineyard has the Shiraz, Grenache and small parcels of Mataro and Semillon.

The highly regarded Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on the banks of the Bethany Creek in a small picturesque vineyard surrounded by ancient gum trees. Turkey Flat's Ros is made from the Menge Road estate Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Dolcetto vines, all grown specifically for this purpose. The Butchers Block blend of Mataro, Shiraz and Grenache is sourced from the Stonewell estate. This vineyard is planted on a unique combination of red-brown earth soils (terra rosa) on a unique underlying limestone base. Stonewell is also planted to Marsanne.

 Turkey Flat

Most of the Turkey Flat vineyards survive only on natural rainfall, and where supplementary water is applied this is done so in very small amounts, and only to maintain healthy leaves and not to increase production. The vineyard yields vary from ten tonne/hectare at Ros to a mean two tonne/hectare for Shiraz.

"The establishment date of Turkey Flat is given as 1990 but it might equally well have been 1870 (or thereabouts), when the Schulz family purchased the Turkey Flat vineyard, or 1847, when the vineyard was first planted to the very old shiraz which still grows there today alongside 8 ha of equally old grenache. Plantings have since expanded significantly, now (in total) comprising shiraz (24 ha), grenache (10.5 ha), cabernet sauvignon (4.7 ha), mataro (3.7 ha) marsanne (2.2 ha), viognier (1 ha), roussanne (0.6 ha) and dolcetto (0.5 ha)." -James Halliday

"The Barossa’s winemaking history started in the mid 1840s when the first commercial vineyards were planted by August Fielder, the Aldenhoven brothers and Johann Gramp (from which sprang Orlando). Shiraz vines planted in 1847, adjacent to Jacobs Creek just outside Tanunda, are still productive today. Although probably used originally to make a sweet port style, today’s tiny yields make a wonderful dry Shiraz under Peter and Christie Schulz’s Turkey Flat label." -Chris Shanahan.com

All of the Turkey Flat wines are made in the Bethany Road winery using traditional open fermenters. Barrel fermentation is followed by maturation in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads and barriques. Climate controlled barrel hall estate bottling further enhances the quality and delicacy of Turkey Flat wines.
