Description

98 points & Top 100 Wines of the Year
"Its perfect texture and balance nullify the vintage challenge."
- James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

Turkey Flat is one of the stalwarts of the Barossa, an icon that has been at the head of the pack for four generations and still going strong.

The Shiraz vines that contribute to this wine are some of the oldest on the planet dating back as far as 1847 which is a remarkable testament to their continuing productivity.

It's powerful and intense, a classic Barossa benchmark that will develop beautifully in the cellar.

Shiraz is a variety that carries great significance in the Barossa Valley and as caretakers for some of the oldest surviving Shiraz vines in the world (dating back to 1847), we take immense pride in crafting this wine. Our highly acclaimed Shiraz has received numerous awards since its first vintage in 1990. However it’s the versatility of this wine, in the way it embraces both power and elegance that we are most proud of. Approachable in its youth or cellar for 10+ years.

98 points & Top 100 Wines of the Year - "The so-so 2020 vintage had its problems, but the ancient (1847 planted) vines provided the backbone of this ultra-elegant, medium-bodied, French-oaked shiraz. Its perfect texture and balance nullify the vintage challenge." - James Halliday (The Weekend Australian)

Turkey Flat

Shiraz was first planted in the 'Turkey Flat' area of the Barossa near Tanunda in 1847 (though there were no turkeys, just plain bustards). The Schulz family have tended vines here since the 1860s, and current custodian Christie Schulz is the fourth generation of the family to continue the tradition.

Their name has become a watchword for consistent quality, their reputation growing for the Rhone varietals Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre, while the Rose has been at the top of the tree for the past decade or so.

Under Christie, Turkey Flat continues to develop to an ecologically positive approach to their viticulture with practices such as applications of organic mulch under-vine, organic fertilisers mid-row and a strong emphasis on cover crop management have all become integral in their quest to restore soil health.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
