For a wine that is always alarmingly drinkable the Turkey Flat Rose has always been a winner. While many a Barossa Rose will be based on Grenache grapes, the Turkey Flat Rose is a vineyard blend of Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet and Dolcetto – just to add a little more grip to the mouthfeel.
With a good whiff of bright red fruit, you think this is going to be another sweet teenage girls drink, but far from the truth. It’s less than 5g/litre residual sugar – so pretty much dry. This is full of fruit sweetness and hints of floral. With a nice spicy white pepper touch thrown in. On the palate it’s packed full of red fruit, with good acidity to keep it crispy clean, and a refreshing watermelon liveliness. This would be perfect at about 3pm on a sunny afternoon eating freshly grilled thai prawns by the poolside – but that’s how I roll.
