Below is the October, 2008 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:



2005 Turkey Flat Shiraz

Barossa Valley, South Australia

 

2005 Turkey Flat ShirazTurkey Flat is more than just a vineyard and home of the best Barossa wines, it is a family business that forms a vital part of the regionís rich cultural history and heritage. It was here, on the banks of Tanunda Creek where bush turkeys once roamed, that pioneer Silesian settler Johann Friedrich August Fiedler planted the first Shiraz vines in 1847.

The gnarled and twisted vines that Fiedler planted so long ago are still a vital part of the equation because it is the intense, concentrated fruit from these ancient vines that set Turkey Flat wines apart and have made them sought after the world over.

The fact that these vines still exist as some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world 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 1800ís.

On the nose, you'll find dark berry fruits, blackberries, kalamata olives, plums, and black pepper. The palate is rich, persistent and concentrated with flavors of blackberry, plums, dark bitter chocolate and cedar, with a fine, grape tannin finish.

95 Points - Robert Parker (Wine Advocate)

"Cut from the same mold as the 2004, the spectacular 2005 Shiraz exhibits an inkier purple color as well as a deeper, richer, more nuanced style. Cropped at .8 tons of fruit per acre, which no doubt accounts for its awesome concentration, it is even better than the 2004, and should be longer lived, evolving for 15 or more years."
