James Halliday 95 Points (equal highest rating rose with Deep Woods)
“The pale pink hue reflects early-picked grenache with carefully measured tannins. The perfumed bouquet of rose petal/spices translates to juicy red berries and a whisk of Turkish delight on the palate of this high class rosé. Length and balance are spot on”.
– James Halliday, The Australian.
“Mark Bulman is a dead set genius when it comes to making rosé. I bought a case of this last year, and I’ll be doing the same this vintage. I drink more rosé than any other wine style. A bit of smoky cap gun over white cherry, fresh strawberry, white pepper and aniseed. It’s pure and fresh, so bright and energetic, but not at all tangy or abrasive, fine chalky texture, and a very long cool finish. Flat out delicious. You could drink gallons of it, and I most likely will”.
Gary Walsh, The WINEFRONT.
“…this famous label looks more refined, more fragrant, more textural more persistent and more sophisticated with each passing vintage. A pale salmon hue heralds an effortless and pitch-perfect unity between red fruits, savoury allure and finely structured mouthfeel. For all it represents, a triumph, and hands down the best yet.”
This is the 27th release of the Turkey Flat Rosé. This wine was first made during a time when Rosé was an anathema in a region becoming world-renowned for big, bold Shiraz. Turkey Flat created a style crafted with clear purpose to shift perceptions, demonstrating that Australian Rosé can be a fine wine and that the Barossa is well-placed to be its source. With nearly thirty years of refinement in technique, our style has become archetypal of Australian Rosé, with fresh, aromatic fruit, florals and spice on the nose, satisfying body and texture on the palate, and a clean, savoury-shift on the finish. Grenache is the star of this wine and is picked in multiple parcels across the vintage to provide the components for a wine that is a masterclass in blending.
