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.

2004 Vintage Tasting notes

The 2004 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 colour is rose petal pink with a panoply of red fruit flavours such as raspberries, cherries and leafy red and black currants, fresh acidity and an ever so slight 'spritz' on the palate from naturally retained CO2.

Reviews and Awards

Reviews for the 2004 Rose - satisfies at every turn

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.
