Turkey Flat Rosé 2008

Maybe it's the day.  Maybe it's the wine.  After stifling un-Melbourne like humidity and continuous rain for seemingly days on end, we are now blessed with 28c, sunny and clear skies in Melbourne.  Summer.  Perfect for rosé over lunch.  Turkey Flat, no less.  I keep forgetting it's only $18.  If not Australia's best rosé, it is close to it.  The 2008 is a blend of grenache, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and dolcetto.  It has an aroma of stone fruits, and a viscous flavoursome texture on the palate.  Delicious stuff.  No point scoring a wine like this.  Just buy it and drink it.
