"Just so spot on….” - 94 Points, Gary Walsh, WINEFRONT
"Beautiful rosé. It’s a more serious, lighter, aromatic dry style.” - 93 Points, Ray Jordan, The Western Australian
Turkey Flat is an iconic Australian Rose and although it has changed stylistically since its inception towards a drier fresher Grenache-based expression, it really hasn’t looked better in our opinion.
The 2019 is the 26th release and it should be said that award winning winemaker Mark Bulman has done an incredible job at keeping this Turkey Flat stalwart at the cutting edge of fine dry Roses in Australia. It’s a 'beautiful Rose', as Ray Jordan says, that will provide much pleasure and vinous refreshment in the warmer Summer months.
What a wickedly good Australian Rose! Dry, feather light, delicate, showing pretty subtle Grenache aromas and crunchy, tangy, just ripe cherry and crisp cranberry infused flavours. There’s a touch of savouriness too which elevates this Rose to yet another level of seriousness. Well done Mark Bulman and the Turkey Flat winemaking team. This is awesome!
Beginning in 1994, Turkey Flat were amongst the first to lead the great Rosé Revival & have since developed a cult following. Beautifully aromatic, this is a light, crisp & dry blend.
The establishment date of Turkey Flat is given as 1990 but it might equally have been 1870 (or thereabouts), when the Schulz family purchased the Turkey Flat vineyard, or 1847, when the vineyard was first planted to the very old shiraz that still grows there today alongside 8ha of equally old grenache. Plantings have since expanded significantly, now comprising shiraz (24ha), grenache (10.5ha), cabernet sauvignon (5.9ha), mourvedre (3.7ha), and smaller plantings of marsanne, viognier and dolcetto. The business is run by sole proprietor Christie Schulz.
