Food Pairings for Turkey Flat Vineyards Butchers Block Red
On the banks of Tanunda Creek in the heart of Barossa where bush turkeys once roamed, the Silesian settler Johann Fiedler planted the first Shiraz vines in 1843. Highly suited to the terroir, they thrived and in 1865 the land was bought by Gottlieb Ernst Schulz, a butcher of sound reputation. Four generations later, Peter and his wife Christie made the transition from grape growing to winemaking, handcrafting this pristine old fruit into a range of superb wines. Not only are these wines the perfect example of how Rhône varietals can work elsewhere, but the perfect expression of the warm Barossa climate. The Butchers Block is a traditional Barossa blend from the Turkey Flat vineyards, including some grapes from the original old vine plantings. It is a blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvédre (Mataro). The nose is floral with hints of five spice, dark plum, cherry and blackcurrant. The result is an intense warm, earthy full-bodied red with seamless oak integration.The palate is generous, displaying juicy sweet lifted fruits with a firm palate structure. An elegant and restrained wine with a velvety finish. This wine is fabulous on its own but can be beautifully paired with grilled red meats or game.
