Turkey Flat Vineyards
2009 Barossa Valley Mourvèdre
Australia: Barossa Valley (South)
Today’s Turkey Flat Vineyards 2009 Barossa Valley Mourvèdre is a heady blend of fruit and earth, with a fantastic finish that fans of spicy California Pinots will love.
This wine really caught our tasting panel by surprise, but the more time we spent with it, the more it grew on us. By the end, quite a few of our panelists were angling to secure a bottle or two for their personal cellars! The wine is rich and expressive, with plenty of lush fruit rounded out by earth and spice, that hit the sweet spot for us.
If you haven’t been won over by our previous Aussie offerings, this wine will delight and surprise you.
Dark, foreboding scarlet at the heart of the glass, slowly transitioning into a ruby fringe.
Robust aromas of sweet plums and blackberries blend with dark currant, sweet cedar wood, tobacco, anise, clove, and a touch of lavender.
A fantastic blend of sweet fruit and earth, with fresh raspberry, dark cherry, and boysenberry laid overtop sweet tobacco leaf, fresh cedar wood shavings, cherry cola, and dark baking spices.
Fans of spicy California Pinots will love this wine, with a familiar lengthy finish highlighted by fruit and a spicy oakiness.
A hearty meal of Latin-spiced braised pork shoulder, served in tacos with fresh avocado and homemade salsa.
