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.

2007 Vintage Tasting notes

The 2007 Rosé is, as in previous years, a complex blend of Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Dolcetto. Each of these varieties adds its own individual characteristic to the wine.

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

Reviews for the 2007 Rose - still the leader in the top class Rose stakes

REDISCOVERING ROSE – Tim Rutherford. April 22, 2009

This top-notch Barossa Valley wine maker shows off the brilliant color of its Rosé in a custom bottle that, despite its 750 ml standard size, feels and looks much smaller - and much more elegant. But this Rosé doesn't stop with good looks - it's got the legs to compete in the flavor race as well. The wine, a blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Dolcetto, delivers big aromatics that lead into a dry-style Rose packed with savory character and a very sophisticated finish. I adore Barossa Valley wines - and this Rosé is no exception.

AUSTRALIAN WINE COMPANION 2009 James Halliday

Blush-pink; the complex base wine varieties pay dividends; while fresh and light, there are layers of strawberry, raspberry, and cherry fruits; fruity rather than sweet. Rating: 94 Points.

TASTE FOOD & WINE 2008 - The Best Wines of 2008, Matthew Jukes & Tyson Stelzer

Turkey Flat is still the leader in the top class rosè stakes on account of the savoury elements that are packed in alongside its unutterably fragrant strawberry and raspberry fruit. Like Charlie's, this is another 'light red' rather than rosè wine. If you could only choose one wine to drink with the finest Indian cuisine imaginable, here is your date.

ROBERT PARKER’S WINE ADVOCATE – Issue 173, October 2007

The Provencal-styled 2007 Rosé is medium pink with bright aromas of strawberry and raspberry. It has a velvety texture, intense flavours, excellent concentration and a lengthy finish. It would do very well on a Thanksgiving table. Rating: 90 Points.

ADELAIDE ADVERTISER TOP 100 WINES, November 2007

'Clean and fresh pink hues with lovely clean berry and light plum aromatics followed by a juicy mouthful of berries and a touch of sugars and acidity, balancing cleverly with fruit weight and right in the zone for a rosè style that meets many tastes and food fashions.' Rating: 91 Points.

THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD - GOOD LIVING, Huon Hooke. November 27, 2007

Made from Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet, and Dolcetto, this has slightly sweaty overtones to its lolly, cherry-essency nose. It is light and soft to taste, balanced and refreshing; not overly powerful or long, but terrifically quaffable. Rating: 89/100.
