Reviews and Ratings

Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

An unexpected blend of predominantly Grenache with small additions of Shiraz, Cab Sauv and Mataro, creates this crisp and refreshing rose from Barossa. Bright and vibrant palate with aromas and flavours of fragrant ripe peaches and tangerines with a touch of spice. Just off dry, medium bodied with rich, luxurious mouthfeel. Perfectly paired with slightly spicy Thai or Indian dishes. For best results, serve chilled. Tasted June 2017. Tania Thomas – www.runawaygrape.com.
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted June 14th 2017. Colour very clear and brilliant with just a tint of pink. Aroma of pink grapefruit, perfume, strawberry, orange blossom with a note of orange rind. On the palate very light pink grapefruit a little acid but the taste disappears quickly. So not much of a finish. It is easy drinking with light fruit taste good on its own. We had it with pan fry pickerel coated with a flour and jerk spice mixture, potatoes salad and green peas. Matched ok.
68916 Australia Rosé Barossa Valley, South Australia Turkey Flat (2016) is a zesty raspberry, rose petals and small berry fruit rosé from South Australia's Barossa Valley. This is a tasty, solid rosé made with a blend of 95% Grenache and a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Mataro that will leave you wanting for more. - Community Wine Reviews
