Turkey Flat Rosé 2012


Turkey Flat produce one of Australia's better rosés.  The 2012 vintage is a blend of grenache, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and dolcetto.  I don't recall previously considering that particular grape combination, but it's not so surprising to see odd bedfellows with rosé.  The result is a good wine, with aromatics of nectarines and florals.  The palate is dry and has a viscous texture, with mostly nectarines and some sour lemon pith edges.

Great value wine. The 2010 and 2011 also had the same blend of grapes. Cheers, Peter

Certainly agree with that call. Thanks for the info re the 2010 and 2011. I thought historically it was mostly grenache, and the dolcetto on the label surprised me a bit for the Barossa, but as with all blends, if it works, it works ...

Cheers
Sean
