Below is the February, 2006 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:




2003 Turkey Flat Shiraz2003 TURKEY FLAT SHIRAZ

Barossa Valley, Australia

 

The Schulz family settled in the Barossa Valley in 1865 and purchased land with Shiraz vines planted in 1847. These vines are still in production and their grapes are used in this wine. These vines are possibly the oldest producing Shiraz vines in the world. The fourth generation of the Schulz family still owns Turkey Flat. The warm 2003 vintage, compared to 2002, produced full-flavored, concentrated wines. Each small parcel of Shiraz was vinified separately and matured in French oak barrels. The result is a firmly-structured, complex Shiraz, with lifted primary fruit aromas of bitter cherries and prunes, and secondary aromas of Christmas cake/plum pudding, mocha, and leather/suede. The full-bodied palate has flavors of plums, red fruits, and spice. This wine will definitely improve with careful cellaring of 10-12 years and, due to minimum filtration, may develop a bottle deposit over this time. Awarded 92 points by Robert Parker of The Wine Advocate.

 

Wine Map of AustraliaThe Barossa Valley is certainly the most famous wine region of South Australia. The climate is characterized by a high average of sunshine, and low humidity and rainfall and thus offers ideal conditions for full-bodied red wines, excellent fortified wines and robust white wines. There are two basic soil types, both low in fertility: brown, loamy sand to clay loam, and more sandy light gray- brown soils.
