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.

2010 Vintage Tasting notes

The 2010 vintage has delivered another great Rosé; a warm summer and a mild autumn provided perfect conditions for ripening Rosé varieties. Displaying a brilliant ruby colour, with soft tannins and a crisp, dry balanced finish with complexity and elegance.

2009 & 2010 Rose - reliably one of the finest

MONEY MAGAZINE - Peter Forrestal, October 2010 While Turkey Flat has reliably been one of Australia's finest roses, the 2009 is an absolute cracker. It's a blend of grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet and Dolcetto with attractive brambly redcurrant flavours a hint of licorice and musk stick. A touch of sweetness is offset by lively natural acidity and a gentle grip.

I tasted the 2010 Turkey Flat Rose in a line-up of 21 roses and it was as good as the previous wine - in fact, it topped the tasting just ahead of the 2010 Majella 'Melody' Rose. The Turkey Flat is vibrant fresh and tangy.

Reviews for the 2010 Rose - oh-so-quaffable

AUSTRALIAN WINE COMPANION 2012 - James Halliday

Bright pale puce; a rose built from the ground up, the blend of grenache/Shiraz/Cabernet Sauignon/Dolcetto carefully calibrated from the opening stanzas of the bouquet and fore-palate through to the complex, long finish with its mix of spicy/savoury red fruits. Rating: 95

THE MATTHEW JUKES 100 BEST AUSTRALIAN WINES 2011

It must be the Dolcetto in this otherwise predictable blend which brings the je ne sais quoi to Turkey Flat Rosé. Never has this pervasive brew had such style or drinkablity because in 2010 TFR is beautifully balanced and less combative of late and this observation can also be levelled at the two 2009 Butchers block wines, too, which if you haven't seen them before are pinpoint accurate Southern Rhone remixes.

SYDNEY MORNING HERALD - November 2010

Grenache forms the backbone of this deliciously slurpable rosé - as it does in Provence, the inspiration for this traditional Barossa Valley style. It's juicy and fresh with lots of raspberry and red-currant fruit flavours, its slight sweetness offset by an earthy brambly character and a zap of lemon-fresh acidity.

CRAVINGS Summer 2010 Edition

Barossa Valley - grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon & Dolcetto Brilliant pink/crimson with aromas of strawberry, rose water and spice. The ripe strawberry fruit carries through to the palate, showing some sweetness, but finishing clean with a pleasant, spicy phenolic pickup. A very good example of the style.

SYDNEY MORNING HERALD - Huon Hooks Top 50 Summer Wines

A perennial favourite - light in colour and body weight, fresh and banana-like, with a light but dry, gently flavoured, easy drinking palate. It's not shrill or in your face. It finishes with a light grip and is oh so quaffable. Now to 2012. Rating: 92/100

COURIER MAIL - Ken Gargett, September 2010

Fragrant blend with grenache and Shiraz dominant. Pleasant strawberry notes and floral touches. Rating: 90 Points

COURIER MAIL - Tony Love, August 2010

Always of interest, this rose combines 54 per cent grenache, 28 per cent shiraz, 12 per cent cabernet, and this year 6 per cent dolcetto, the final tweaking creating a smart pinkie that comes into its own with nibbles and tapas-like bits as well as small goods platters. There's an intriguing herbal edge to the aromas that immediately engages the senses, though in the end it's a fun, red fruit slurper with a touch of grenache spice to finish with an adult lift.
