Turkey Flat Pedro Ximénez
We visited Turkey Flat Vineyards at Barossa in 2010 when we did the South Australia wine tour. I remember it was the last cellar door on our itinerary for the day and the sky was turning dark. We managed to reach the restored bluestone butcher's shop house cellar door just before they closed. The lady at the cellar door was packing up when we stepped in. Nevertheless, she was very friendly and guided us through the tasting session.
One of the wine that we really liked during the tasting was their fortified Pedro Ximénez. It is a sweet dessert wine and has this intense marmalade aromas with some sweet spice and dried figs. The palate is lusciously rich with some pure marmalade and dried figs and raisins characters, very long, sweet and rich finish but with a good freshness.
CJ and Jazz brought this to the private luncheon which we hosted them 2 weeks ago and we had a very very sweet ending.
