2016 Turkey Flat Rose

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2012 Vintage) says
An attractive pale-pink rose with really striking raspberry, cassis and cranberry fruit aromas; very enticing and bright. The palate s easy and fresh, strawberries and other red fruits here. Little bit of sweetness, but all nicely finished.

Bright puce; made from grenache, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and dolcetto; both the fragrant, perfumed bouquet and lively palate express red fruits to the exclusion of all else: strawberry, raspberry and red cherries; the flavours are remarkably persistent, extending well into the aftertaste. Lovely rose.

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!

The wine has 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 12+ months. Consistently at the very top of Australian rosés.

Slender, sexy bottle, stunning wine from the instant they halved the sugar a few years back. Love love! Fresh as. More perfume than ground floor at Myer.

Bright pale puce; a rose built from the ground up, the blend of Grenache/Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon/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.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Bright fuchsia; the bouquet has fragrant small red fruits plus a touch of spice; the palate with structure and length way above average, the finish deliciously dry, spice coming again on the aftertaste.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Bright fuschia; as elegant as always, made by a team that has developed great expertise with the style; offers an array of gently sweet red fruits on the mid-palate, then a balanced dry finish.

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.

It's a long, hot road trip from Melbourne to Darwin, especially in a 78 diesel Landcruiser that redlines at 60 km/h. What a relief when the bloke at Turkey Flat showed us how to work the 'air-con—by kicking open a flap next to the throttle pedal. Pity we didn't make it to the Barossa till the return trip. But this wine is a breath of fresh air too. Quite delicious, and just perfect for a lunch with friends.

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

As immaculately made and balanced as ever; fruit-driven strawberry and cherry; subliminal sweetness.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Vivid fuchsia; a fragrant and vibrant bouquet with cherry citrus fruit and spice aromas is followed by a palate which flows on logically, with sweet fruit on the mid-palate, then a dry finish. A blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Dolcetto.
