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.

2011 Rose - catch this bird right away!

WINE STAR - Tyson Stelzer, September 2011 The Turkey has landed and it’s putting on quite a spectacle! Watermelon, pomegranate and strawberry, with a touch of textural acidity and a well-gauged dose of sweetness. Most 2011s need another six months to calm down. Not this one, so catch this bird right away! Rating: 92 Points;

2011 Rose - consistently one of the best

WEST AUSTRALIAN - Ray Jordan, July 2011 Consistently one of the best roses made in Australia. Brilliant bright crimson pink colour with red berry scents flecked with a little leafy spiciness. The palate is light bodied and with a vibrant bouncy feel that makes for excellent current drinking. Serve chilled. Sensation of sweetness but the dry finish is a feature. Rating: 91/100

2011 Rose -among the finest

DAILY TELEGRAPH - Jeff Collerson, July 2011 The Barossa's Turkey Flat was our top rosé maker before that style became fashionable. But despite increased competition its dry, stylish and gently fruity offering remains among the finest. Fragrant with red berry flavours and fresh acidity.

2011 Rose - Viva la Revolucion!

WINE OF THE WEEK - Winsor Dobbin I must admit I am a sucker for the rosé revolution; all these new-wave, food-friendly, dry rosés that are perfect lunchtime wines - and are pretty darn good with dinner too. This wine has been one of the flagbearers. A blend of grenache, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and dolcetto from the Barossa Valley, it is light, crisp and refreshing with a nice balance between red fruit characters and savoury nuances. You could take this on a picnic, pair it with a Lebanese banquet or simply qauff it on the porch on a warm evening. Viva la Revolucion!

2011 Rose

MELBOURNE WEEKLY- The Grapevine by Ben Knight, October 2011 If you asked me what I knew about Turkey Flat a few days ago, I'd have been able to tell you that they made more rosé than any other wine. I possessed a little more information than this, but this pearl of wisdom stuck in my mind. If you don't know where Turkey Flat is based, this may not seem too remarkable, but it is the Barossa home of the big Aussie red yet they make lots of rose. This rosé isn't made from the bleedings of the shiraz wines a technique where juice is run off from the tank of another wine. This is rose made from an unusual mix of grapes destined to be pink and nothing else.If you have read this column before, you will know of my lack of interest in the type of grapes that go into a wine, but this one is worth a mention.It combines grenache (originally from Spain), shiraz and cabernet sauvignon (France) and dolcetto (Italy). This unique blend of red grapes speaks volumes about Australians borrowing ideas from all over the world. All of this information can be found on the back label as the front label simply says Rosé (I do wish we would start labelling it 'Pink' instead). I love rose wine. I love its apparent simplicity, and the fact there are no rules governing it, other than it should be refreshing and pink. And as you'll see, this does just that

James Halliday on the 2011 Rose

This is consistently one of the best roses made each year. It has a pale fuchsia colour and the usual blend of grenache, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and dolcetto. The bouquet is fragrant, with the same small red berry fruits that are found on the palate. The finish is fresh and clean, with a hint of citrus on the well-balanced finish. Drink with almost anything over the coming months. Rating 94/100
