Turkey Flat Butchers Block Red, Barossa

Vintage 2016

“Butchers Block used to be a forward-drinking SGM / Côtes-du-Rhône style wine with open fruit and minimal tannin. In the last few years it has clearly invested in a gym membership (note to self) and this has not resulted, thankfully, in a Muscle Mary physique, but in more tone and sinew than I expected. Today Butchers Block is ninja-fit with elevated aromatics and punchier tannins. There is a lot of wine here and I dearly hope that we will see it sold in many more outlets.”

Matthew Jukes, 100 Best Australian Wines 2017/18 July 2017

Tasting Note

Named in honour of the family’s original use for the building that now houses the Cellar Door, Butchers Block Red is a structured, fruit-driven & medium bodied wine - a crowd-pleasing style, that offers excellent value for money. Each parcel is recognised when blending and each varietal is vinified & aged individually in French oak barrels before the final blending process. Shiraz adds generous mouthfeel, Grenache the spice and cherry-like sweetness and Mourvèdre the backbone, savoury edge and fragrance.
