The Butchers Block Red is a traditional Barossa blend made with grapes selected from the Turkey Flat vineyards, including some from the original old vine plantings. A velvety red blend of 56% Shiraz, 27% Grenache and 17% Mourvédre. Turkey Flat is the local name for the vineyard property and is believed to be so named by the original settlers in the late 1840’s after the large flocks of native bush turkeys (Australian Bustard) in the area. Each wine has its own personalised turkey to distinguish them from one another. For the Butchers Block Red, each varietal component of this wine was vinified separately in open fermenters and subsequently aged in both hogsheads and larger format French oak for approximately 18 months. The result is an intense warm, earthy full-bodied red with seamless oak integration.
