Quick Overview

The TURKEY FLAT “BUTCHERS BLOCK” 2015 SHIRAZ GRENACHE MATARO (Barossa Valley) is ready to drink and rearing to go. No, it is not a thin, watery wine. It has a beautiful depth of purple colour, a lovely brambly, rich Barossan-nose, and a smooth, elegant, mid-weight body that makes the palate go YUM! YUM!


It is a gloriously well-balanced and structured wine that you can drink right now either on its own or with food – BUT wait, there’s more!! If like me you have a degree of patience, you can park it away in the cupboard or cellar for a while (12-24 months and 3-5 years respectively) and it will reward your patience by improving and rounding out to be a sublime wine.

Product Description

A dry winter and growing season led to the earliest vintage on record. Though quick the vintage yielded robust flavours and colours. A thrilling wine that leaps from the glass with instant rapport. Layers of spice, dark plum, cassis and berry fruit adorn the palate - pleasantly held by an oaky embrace. To be shared, to be enjoyed.


Reviews and Awards


2015 Butchers Block Red - outstanding value for money


Deep red/purple, bright colour, with a walnut, dry spice, dusty aroma. It's medium to full-bodied and softly textured, with good fleshiness and abundant supple tannins. There is density and richness here, with some licorice notes and abundant alcohol without hotness. A generously proportioned shiraz-based red. Delicious wine, and quite decaent. Outstanding value for money. Huon Hooke



2015 Butchers Block Red - Dan Traucki's Wine of the Week
In this day of instant everything (news, information, reactions, etc), one of the few things that’s out of step with the world is wine. Most wines, certainly most reds, need quite some time after release before they are really ready to drink – unless you like monster reds. Yes, there are a few winemakers who hold their wines back for a few years so that they are readier for consumption when released, but even Grange is now released a year earlier than it used to be.




Therefore it is great to come across a wine that hits the ground running. No need to hide it away until it becomes more drinkable.

With an RRP of just $20 for a truly great Barossa blend, you just can’t go wrong.


A SENSATIONAL SIP, SLURP & SWALLOW! Dan Track - 2015 Butchers Block Red - drinks like a charm
It’s right in the zone. It’s an attractive blend of red and black berried fruit flavours, teamed beautifully with anise, leather and those dried, almost rusty spice characters so common in Barossa reds. It’s balanced, it’s ripe, it’s warm but not excessively so. Or not distractingly so. In short, it drinks like a charm, and has plenty of regional character.
