Barossa Valley, South Australia. 14.2%
Consumed in Bordeaux, over 4 nights. As a deliberate contrast, and what a contrast!!
On the first night it just reeked of added tartaric acid and American oak. Bordeaux in comparison tastes so natural, whereas this is a concoction.
On the second night it had mellowed a tad, to be a semi-port. Mint toffee flavours.
By the final night it was much more enjoyable as a ripe hot climate wine. Quite luscious.
I feel that Turkey Flat have improved their winemaking in more recent vintages, the wines still have tremendous fruit but are less forced, with less obvious added acid.
