Quick Overview



James Halliday on the 2016 Butchers Block Red



"A shiraz/grenache/mourvedre blend, part sourced from some of the oldest (1865) vines on the Turkey Flat vineyard. Excellent colour; a warm and spicy bouquet introduces a medium-bodied palate with red and black berries, plus good mouthfeel and length. Oak plays little or no part in framing the palate, fine tannins doing the trick.

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.

2016 Butchers Block Red - a fair bit of bush character



...Beside (the 2016 Turkey Flat Grenache) sits another more homestead style Turkey Flat 2016 Butchers Block Red, which is the estate's variation within the GSM genre, here with a 49:38:13 split of shiraz, grenache and mataro. Savoury characters here exude spicy, smoky smallgood aromas to contrast with its crushed crimson berries that are however always cloaked in the varietal feed of sandy, grainy tannins and textures. A knockabout country red blend with a fair bit of bush character to boot.


Tony Love.


2016 Butchers Block Red - delightful






"Spicy aromatic bouquet, great on the palate- oodles of flavour, smooth & delicious with fine-grained tannins. Brilliant with food right now. DELIGHTFUL."
