Large bottle 2019 rose thumb

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.

2005 Vintage Tasting notes

The 2005 Rosé is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon 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 2005 Rose - good juicy length


Light, bright fuchsia; spotlessly clean red fruits; achieves length and persistence without reliance on residual sugar. Grenache / Shiraz/ Cabernet / Dolcetto. Rating: 94 Points. Drink: Now.

HERALD SUN – Quaffing with Paddy Kendler August 9, 2005

Peter Schulz thoroughly deserves his reputation for producing one of our best roses, and the ’05 from his Turkey Flat winery in the Barossa Valley is delightfully true to form. The unusual blend of Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dolcetto results in an interesting combination of fruity flavours neatly packed within a balanced body. Best served cool to cold but not icy.

SUNDAY LIFE – Sally Gudgeon 4 September, 2005

Made from Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Dolcetto, this has strawberry. Raspberry, and cherry flavours with a crisp, fresh finish. Serve it with Bruschetta.

ROBERT PARKER’S WINE ADVOCATE – Issue 161, October 2005

One of Australia’s finest roses is Turkey Flat’s 2005 Rose, a deep, bold offering made from a blend of 52% Grenache, 26% Shiraz, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Dolcetto. Its light to medium ruby colour is accompanied by a big bouquet of sweet strawberries, cherry jam, a hint of currants. Medium-bodied, with enough acidity to balance moderate quantities of residual sugar, it should be enjoyed over the next 6-8 months. Rating: 89 Points.

THE ADVERTISER – REVIEW with Robin Day October 15th, 2005

Colour: Purple tint over apricot/crimson. Nose: Fresh floral tones, hints of Turkish delight. Taste: Seamless continuum of fruit, sweetness and acidity. Occasion: In the sun or in the shade or with an aromatic and spicy dish. Rating: 90 Points

THE WINE FRONT – Campbell Mattinson, January 2005

Clearly a good year. Fragrant, bright red, strawberried and dry, with good juicy length and a sense of essential mouth-perfume maintained throughout. Fruity, but not sweet. Rating: 88 Points
