Turkey Flat Vineyards Shiraz 2006

Turkey Flat Vineyards Shiraz 750ML 2006    
Sku: 16582

The Turkey Flat Vineyard boasts some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world. Planted in 1847, these hard-working gnarled old vines are still producing fantastic grapes. They are dry grown with their roots extending metres into the soil in search of moisture. Much of the credit for the best Shiraz made in the Barossa is due to old vines such as these. The fact that these vines still exist is largely due to a far-sighted quarantine scheme, in which South Australia was spared the phylloxera outbreak which devastated the vineyards of Europe, America and subsequently parts of Australia in the late 1800s.

The 2006 Shiraz is a glass-coating opaque purple color with an aromatic array of pain grille, pencil lead, smoke, espresso, and blueberry. Layered on the palate, it has outstanding grip, savory black fruit flavors, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It will continue to unwind for several years and offer a drinking window extending from 2012 to 2022.
Earthy, loamy character adds interest to the dark berry and espresso notes at the core, with slightly crunchy tannins around the finish as the flavors persist nicely. Better than previously reviewed. Best from 2011 through 2017. 1,000 cases imported. HS
