2013 Turkey Flat 'Butchers Block' Red

This vintage of the Butcher's Block Red is Shiraz dominant, accounting for almost half of the volume, with Grenache and Mataro making up the rest in similar proportions. A very generous and well balanced blend that  over delivers at this price point. 

Aromas of roses, new leather, strawberries, earth and spice. Some cassis with red and black berries on the palate. Subtle yet well structured tannins make for a silky smooth, easy to drink wine that impresses. A great, versatile food wine at a smart price.
