AUSTRALIAN WINE COMPANION 2006 – James Halliday
Vividly coloured and fragrant; fresh red and black cherry, raspberry and strawberry fruit; clean, long finish. Rating: 93 Points.
THE WINE FRONT – Campbell Mattinson, January 2005
Very good rose – there should be more like it. Smells of roses and herbs, has a suggestion of sweetness on the palate but is more about dry, cool, Turkish Delight length. Satisfies at every turn. Top class. Rating: 92 Points
MATTHEW JUKES – Rosé Future, 2004
Turkey Flat is an historic estate in the Barossa Valley, and it is widely acknowledged as one of the New World’s foremost rosé producers. Made from a clever and original blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, and Dolcetto, this is one of the most impressive rosés I have tasted in years. With a beguiling cranberry and red berry nose and a rich, luxurious, medium-weight palate , this is a grown-up wine. Dry and meaty and more than a match for carnivorous fare, this is a wine that will impress with its bravado, complexity and value for money.
THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN MAGAZINE – Max Allen July 10-11, 2004
Here they come... pink wines from the vintage just gone are popping up in fridges across the nation, but few are as thrillingly vibrant, spicy, crisp and glowingly pink as this Grenache blend from the Barossa: drink with garlicky antipasto or a coarse-textures porky terrine.
THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD – UNCORKED Spring 2004
Grenache rosé is made all over the world, and it has a long history in our Barossa Valley. This Barossa pinky is all about raspberry and spice fruit that’s fresh and juicy with a hint of sweetness mid-palate. Its finishes pleasantly dry. Food: Mee Goreng. Rating: 4 Stars
THE WINE ADVOCATE – Robert Parker, October 2004
Turkey Flat is one of Australia's finest sources for full-throttle, reasonably dry rosé. Their medium-bodied 2004 Rosé, a Grenache/Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon/Dolcetto blend, exhibits big, exuberant, strawberry and cherry aromas, good colour, plenty of structure, and surprising size as well as flavour.
