Large bottle 2018 rose

The Barossa Valley has the perfect climate and ideal grape varieties to produce Rosé. It is a wine style that should be enjoyed fresh and chilled.

Having been amongst the first to lead the great Rosé revival, it has been interesting to watch the popularity of this wine style grow.

Bucking the notion that Rosé is an afterthought, our 'Prince of Pink' has a special place in our hearts & is crafted with a clear purpose.

Sourced from specific sites achieving perfect yields promoting prominent primary fruit while retaining appealing palate cleansing crispness.

Enjoy with: Friends, under a tree on a hot, summer's day. Not summer? Just turn up the heat & serve with Asian or Spanish inspired spicy or seafood dishes. Best served chilled.

2001 Vintage Tasting notes

The 2001 is another classic Turkey Flat Rosé – displaying perfumes fruit and freshness, typical of the style for which we have gained an enviable reputation. This is the first wine to be produced from our new winery.

The 2001 growing season was warmer than average, ideal for the development of vibrant colour and flavour in red grapes.

This year’s Rosé is a blend of Shiraz (45%), Grenache (28%), Cabernet Sauvignon (19%) and Dolcetto (8%). The addition of Dolcetto, a highly regarded red variety from the Piedmont area in Italy, to the blend has contributed freshness and spiciness and an extra layer of complexity to this very popular wine style.

Reviews and Awards

Reviews for the 2001 Rose - soft & harmonious

WEEKEND EDITION – January 26-27, 2002

A light red made from a blend of Barossa Valley Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dolcetto grapes. It’s cranberry juice-coloured, slightly aromatic with red currant and liquorice flavours. Try with antipasto.

WINE SPECTATOR, August 31, 2002

Light and fresh, a bit darker than most rosés; best drunk slightly chilled to emphasize the soft berry and cherry fruit. Drink now. 5,000 cases made. Rating: 84 Points.

AUSTRALIAN GOURMET TRAVELLER

Grenache fruit features once again in the blend for this delightful Rosé from Peter Schulz. Intense but pale ruby red, with distinctive Grenache aromas of plums and violets, the wine has soft and harmonious flavours with a completely dry finish. This is the ideal accompaniment for picnic foods.

WINEPROS – James Halliday June 28, 2001

Vivid, light purple-red; the bouquet offers an exotic mix of crushed rose petals and citrus, merging into a mix of cherries, spices and leaves on the vibrant palate. Rating: 90 Points.

UNCORKED – Issue 15. Ralph Kyte-Powell & Huon Hooke, October 2001

The colour is hot pink: quite deep for a rose. The bouquet reveals masses of sweet Grenache fruit. It tastes slightly sweet, soft and grapey - a very gluggable wine.
