Natalie's Score: 90/100

Smoky and toasty from lavish oak aging. This full-bodied and delicious Australian red wine blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre (GSM). Aromas of fleshy black plum and berry. Round and smooth and mouth-filling. Portions of these grapes grow on some of the Barossa Valley's oldest vines. Pair with a pepper steak.

Food pairings: grilled red meats, roast chicken, stir fried pork tenderloin.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Red and black briars, dried cherry, fresh herb, Worcestershire sauce, menthol, charcuterie, plum skin, and candied violets dominate this wine. There is incredible balance here, and an acidity that demands food. I am both surprised and amazed. 92 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is a beautiful blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro grapes from some of the original vines on the Turkey Flat property. The deep red colour, the aromas of ripe, dark berries and licorice, and the flavours of blackberry, cherry, pepper, and light oak add up to a well balanced wine. It was delicious paired with a lamb ragu. Tasted April 7, 2017.
The 2014 vintage of this robust Australian red wine is an estate-grown on some of the oldest grape vines in Barossa. Turkey Flat Butcher's Block (2014) is a red wine blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre (GSM). This Barossa Valley red wine has been owned by the Schulz family since 1865 who owned a butcher business. his full-bodied and delicious Australian red wine. The bluestone butchers shop has been restored to house the winery. Drink now and for the next 10 years. - Community Wine Reviews
