Grenache has it’s origins in Spain and is particularly well suited to the Barossa climate due to its ability to withstand extremes of heat, aridity and wind.

The fruit for this wine was predominantly sourced from 97 year old Grenache vines grown on the Turkey Flat Vineyard. These old vines produce fantastically concentrated fruit which translates into a style of Grenache for which Turkey Flat has become famous.

These vines are traditionally spur pruned, in the goblet style of Southern France and yields are kept low (around 2 tonnes/acre or approximately 32 hectolitres/hectare) producing wines of exceptional quality.

The 2007 Grenache is rich and earthy, displaying aromas of cherry, chocolate. The palate is full with stewed plum and anise overlain with warmth and peppery spices.

Full of rich fruit whilst young, this wine will develop more savoury characters with careful cellaring. Bottled under screw cap closure this wine will benefit from decanting prior to serving.
