Turkey Flat, Butchers Block, 6 x 75cl

Turkey Flat, Butchers Block, 6 x 75cl

The Butchers Block is a traditional Barossa blend made with grapes selected from the Turkey Flat vineyards, including some from the original old vine plantings. It is a blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvédre (Mataro), with the proportions of each variety varying from vintage to vintage.
Here, each varietal is vinified & aged individually in French oak barrels before the final blending process. Shiraz adds the generous mouthfeel, Grenache the spice and cherry-like sweetness and Mourvèdre the backbone, savoury edge and fragrance. Balance is crucial, each varietal's contribution is evident yet nothing competes for your attention.

The 2013 Butchers Block Red has an attractive colour & uplifting bouquet of dark plums, rose & sweet spice. The Shiraz brings a classic element of spice and blackcurrant to the palate followed by Grenache’s typical raspberry, cherry combination. Mataro is the spine of the blend, adding supportive tannin & fragrance.

Enjoy wit warm, comforting meals - spaghetti bolognese, braises or lamb cutlets. For something different try with braised rabbit or hare with tomato & olives.
