Turkey Flat Barossa Rose 2015
The Turkey Flat vineyards and winery are now situated on the historic Section One property in the centre of the Barossa. The Schulz family became owners of the Turkey Flat property in around 1865 and while they continued to tend the ancient vineyard, they also developed a thriving butchers business.
A blend of five different grape varieties; grenache, cabernet shiraz, dolcetto & mature from the Barossa Valley, this was a clear winner when tasted alongside a couple of dozen rosés from the 2014 and 2015 vintages. Brimming with youthful confidence and vigour, it is fresh and lovely, crisp and dry with bright red berry flavours and a smidgen of spice; everything you'd want in a modern rosé. The Schulz family has been making "new-wave" rosés for two decades and certainly has the formula spot on. Pair with souvlaki or kofta sausages. Winsor Dobbin - Sunday Examiner
Incredibly popular with for good reason, this new vintage mix of dominant Barossa grenache with tony doses of cabernet, shiraz, dolcetto and mataro shines brightly in its glossy pale pink, then floral and strawberry like nose lift with lime zest, before hitting the palate with lip-smacking juiciness and a light dusty talc texture. Stay with the berries - their flavour swirls all afternoon. Rating: 91 Points; Tony Love - Top 100 wines, The Adelaide Advertiser
A blend of 92% grenache, 3% each of cabernet and shiraz, 2% dolcetto and 1% mataro, details that reflect the intense care that is taken with this rose. Raspberry, strawberry and red cherry flavours are given an edgy freshness by the crisp acidity without which this would not be the same wine.
