Description

Turkey Flat Pedro Ximenez is a liqueur wine made in the same way as its long lost cousins, the slightly more famous Pedro Ximenez Sherry wines from Jerez in Spain. This Pedro Ximenez is fortified and then aged in a Solera System.

Turkey Flat Vineyards are located at Tanunda Creek in the heart of the Barossa Valley and are named after the flocks of wild bush turkeys that used to roam the area. It was founded in 1990 by the Schulz family who built a winery and cellar door at Bethany in Barossa. However, the family had actually owned vines, as well as a thriving butcher business, in the Barossa dating as far back as 1865. The five vineyards that comprise Turkey Flat are currently owned and managed by Christie Schulz and the wine maker is Mark Bulman.

The grapes for the Turkey Flat Pedro Ximenez are grown specifically for Turkey Flat Vineyards by a number of traditional Barossa grape growers.. The grapes are always left to the last minute for harvest so that they are very ripe and sweet (and potentially raisined, if left long enough). After harvest the grapes are crushed and allowed to macerate for 4 days. The juice is then fortified with grape brandy spirit (a neutral, unaged spirit) and matured in a combination of French oak hogsheads and vats. The solera was created in 1997 and the resulting wine has an average age of around 7 years old. The result is a sticky, sweet dessert wine that is a bit lighter in style to PX Sherry. Careful consideration is given to creating nutty characters with a background of freshness.

Serve With

Turkey Flat Pedro Ximenez can be served with savoury foods such as patés, blue cheese or charcuterie but will also work as a dessert wine with chocolate desserts, sticky toffee pudding or even Christmas pudding.
