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.

2002 Vintage Tasting notes

The 2002 Rosé is a blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Dolcetto. Each of these varieties adds its own character to make this our most complex Rosé yet. The Shiraz adds structure to this full-bodied Rosé, while the Grenache adds its typical red cherry flavours and aromas. Cabernet Sauvignon fills the palate whilst the Dolcetto contributes spice and freshness to the wine.

The result is a wine vibrantly fresh with red cherry, raspberry and subtle spice aromas and flavours.

Reviews and Awards

Reviews for the 2002 Rose - a real crowd pleaser

WINEPROS – James Halliday June 19, 2002

Vivid fuschia; a fragrant and vibrant bouquet with cherry citrus fruit and spice aromas is followed by a palate which flows on logically, with sweet fruit on the mid palate, then a dry finish. A blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Dolcetto. Rating: 92 Points.

THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD - Good Living, Ben Canadiers – Top 10 Drops, 12th November 2002

No sickly sweet lolly water here; this is the real rose deal: herbal, satisfying, fruit-rich and with a touch of Angostura Bitters on the back palate.

DIVINE MAGAZINE – Ben Canadier, November/January 2003

A blend of Grenache, Cabernet, Shiraz, and Dolcetto, this is just gorgeous: round, mouth filling, packed with cherry and berry fruit flavour and with a lingering, balanced finish. Cordial for grown-ups and one of the best we can recall. Highly recommended.

AUSTRALIAN GOURMET TRAVELLER – Ben Canadier, February/March 2003

A blend of Dolcetto, Shiraz, and Cabernet here. Appropriately sweet and generous at the beginning, and then the herbal element takes over mid-palate. This is a big mouthful of wine.

DONNA HAY MAGAZINE, Summer 2003

Strawberries, raspberries and cherries jump out of this bottle. There is some sweetness left in the wine but it is so well balanced that you simply enjoy it. Divine with ripe tomato, garlic and basil pasta.

THE WINE ADVOCATE - Robert Parker, 23rd August, 2003

An excellent winery, Turkey Flat Vineyards has produced a 2002 Rose (a blend of 27% Shiraz, 38% Grenache, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Dolcetto) offering loads of strawberry fruit, medium body, and fresh lively aromatics as well as flavours. It should be enjoyed over the next 6 months. Rating: 90 Points.

GOOD LIVING – Huon Hooke September 3rd, 2002

A big flavoured Grenache-based Barossa rosé with just a smidgin of residual sweetness. It has a vivid, light purple-pink hue and a vibrant cherry, fruity bubblegum aroma. Clean, fresh and balanced, it’ll be great quaffing slightly chilled in warmer weather. A real crowd pleaser. Drink with: Antipasti.

SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL WINE COMPETITION, Huon Hooke 2003

This is a clean, fruity, slightly grassy wine. Perhaps a bit of a Cabernet in it. Well balanced. Excellent fruit. It's not too sweet but it's grapey with esters, very fresh and youthful. Very new tasting wine. Vibrant. A real crowd pleaser. It went well with the food. (Top 100 Wine 2003, Best Still Rose, Sydney International Wine Competition).
