The 1995 Rosé follows the success of the 1994, and has become somewhat of a cult wine. Made from 70 year old vines, a light fragrant wine, typical of it’s kind. The Turkey Flat Rosé is produced accordingly to traditional Barossa methods, with precise control of the fermentation temperature. It is best consumed whilst young and full of fruit. Serve chilled.
The second Rosé from Turkey Flat was made at Charles Melton Wines. This year we added 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Shiraz to the Grenache to make an even better wine than before. The blending of these varieties gives the wine a lovely balance of sweetness, (though not too sweet) and is bordering on more of a light dry red style or as some have described it as a serious Rosé.
In the Weekend Australia, our 1995 Rosé was the first wine on the first page of James Halliday’s Best Red Wines under $15.00 a bottle in Australia (Nov. 25-26 issue).
