Turkey Flat Rosé 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

On the banks of Tanunda Creek in the heart of Barossa where bush turkeys once roamed, the Silesian settler Johann Fiedler planted the first Shiraz vines in 1843. Highly suited to the terroir, they thrived and in 1865 the land was bought by Gottlieb Ernst Schulz, a butcher of sound reputation. Four generations later, Peter and his wife Christie made the transition from grape growing to winemaking, handcrafting this pristine old fruit into a range of superb wines. Not only are these wines the perfect example of how Rhône varietals can work elsewhere, but the perfect expression of the warm Barossa climate. Australia is ideally suited to producing and consuming wine as fruity, refreshing and reviving as an ice cool glass of Rosé. We enjoy the perfect climate and have the ideal grape varieties, as well as the perfect food culture to complement this style of wine. The 2008 Rosé is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dolcetto. Each of these varieties adds its own unique character to make this our most complex Rosé yet.

A lovely rose - one of the first wines I ever really noticed and loved many years ago. I just opened a bottle of 2008 and it's drinking very well - maybe not quite as bright and grapefruity on the nose as I remember, but still really great. An interesting bright salmon hue. Floral on the nose with lots of fresh strawberry and peach. Medium weight with soft acidity and slight spicy notes. I might like to see more acid to counter the other stuff going on. Surprisingly long length. Impressed this is still drinking so well.

Rosé with good fruit and balance. Crisp, pleasing finish medium in length with well-blended fruit that resolves beautifully on the palate. Definitely taste strawberry, raspberries and other assorted berries with a hint of earthiness that adds rather than detracts from the finish.
