Deep crimson-purple; one of the icons of the Barossa Valley that year in, year out, has an extra degree of elegance without compromising the depth and intensity of its spicy blackberry and black cherry fruit; the use of 100% French oak is the icing on the cake.

I haven't looked at the specs but it tastes as though there's a smidge more new oak in this release than there have been in the few years previous. There's some coconut, spice, cedarwood and toast - but before anyone is put off, these flavours are gentle and well integrated. They made a positive contribution. It's otherwise blackberried and tarry and, as well, red berried. The aftertaste is all sweet, dessicated fruits and fine tannin. It's a difficult wine to rate, but it's clearly of above average quality. 92+

Barossa richness, yet balanced and intense. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Very nice indeed. Better in 2013. Relative value.

Purple-black and opaque in color, this vintage showcases an expressive black olive bouquet which is complemented by subtle notes of mint. Some creamy blackfruited aromas are revealed with air as graphite and woodsmoke accents add further complexity. Full bodied with creamy textures, the palate has a sophisticated presence with the nicely appointed black cherry and blackberry flavors making a balanced statement. This seamless wine shows gently gains intensity towards the finish with additional bit more breadth and richness coming through with some aeration. Any tannins present are coated with soft fruit. In no way overwrought or extracted, this is one of Turkey Flat's more accessible vintages and a great example of the "New Barossa".
