Turkey Flat Shiraz 2002

90 points

Barossa Valley, South Australia. 14.5%

from the great 2002 vintage where it was said that even a drover’s dog could make decent wine. That said, later in bottle some signs of incomplete ripeness have shown and there is a vegetal seam here not usually seen on Turkey Flat.

Also some interesting aged character, old leather even. Has classic Barossa creaminess but more savoury and complex than most.

Awful tiny cork.
