Turkey Flat Sparkling Shiraz - Barossa Valley
Closure: Crown seal
Bottle size: 750 ml
Sparkling Shiraz forms an integral part of the iconic Barossa tradition in viniculture. A celebration of the regions oldest and best loved grape variety, with bubbles to match. Unashamedly festive, sparkling Shiraz is the perfect addition to a Christmas lunch or Sunday brunch.
Every spring our winemaker, Mark Bulman, meticulously assesses the multitudes of Shiraz barrels and a select few are set aside for sparkling production. Rich in primary fruit and naturally low in tannin this Shiraz is perfect for this bottle-fermented sparkling wine. The Shiraz then goes into our solera system to join other base wines and aged in French casks. The base wine is then blended and tiraged in the traditional method. Following the secondary fermentation the wine is left to mature on lees for approximately one year before disgorgement and liquoring with our own Pedro Ximenez.
Enjoy with: Join our dark & delicious cult and do as we do in the Barossa - pop one open on Christmas morning with your bacon & eggs - or Boxing Day with your left-over turkey & cranberry sauce croissants - & you'll never look back - guaranteed!
The establishment date of Turkey Flat is given as 1990 but it might equally 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 that still grows there today alongside 8ha of equally old grenache. Plantings have since expanded significantly, now comprising shiraz (24ha), grenache (10.5ha), cabernet sauvignon (5.9ha), mourvedre (3.7ha), and smaller plantings of marsanne, viognier and dolcetto. The business is run by sole proprietor Christie Schulz.
