    Grenache has its origins in Spain, in particular the Northern Province of Aragon. A favourite in Southern Australia due to its ability to withstand extremes of heat, aridity and wind, it produces wines of exceptional quality, providing yields are kept low (around 2 tonnes/acre or approximately 32 hectolitres/hectare). The vines are traditionally spur pruned, in the goblet style of Southern France. This wine is made from 90 year old Grenache vines grown on the Turkey Flat Vineyard. These old vines produce fantastically concentrated fruit which translates into a style of Grenache for which Turkey Flat has become famous. 2005 proved to be a classic vintage with steady winter and spring rains providing good soil moisture levels. An extended ripening period with little rain enabled fruit was able to reach maturity without the risk of disease. Grenache, being the last variety picked, benefited from the Indian summer, giving deep colours and extremely rich flavours. Displays aromas of dark cherry, stewed plum and spice. The palate is full with cherry chocolate and cassis flavours, overlain with warmth and peppery spices.
