I'm so excited to share my favourite Rose with you today. I've talked about Turkey Flat Winery before and this is just one more reason that I love them. They have been instrumental in helping Rose's make a splash on the summer wine lists of many in Australia.
This beautiful salmon pink rose is made up of a blend of Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Dolcetto. It smells like berries - lots of strawberry. The palette is fresh and fruity - berry fruity (see what I did there?) but without being sweet. Served chilled on a hot summers day you could sip it forever. It never surprises me when we go through 3 or 4 bottles at a BBQ. It's just so easy to drink. James Halliday rates it a 94 (if you need more convincing on how good it is). And the best bit... well if you pick it up at the cellar door it's just $18 a bottle - BARGAIN.
A few years ago they released it as a magnum. Same cool bottle - just on steriods it was so big. We bought 4 and drank the first 2 on Christmas day that year. Not only was there a fight over the last glass, there was a fight over who got to keep the bottle. I lost. Luckily I had another 2 at home which are now empty and have made lovely candle holders at long dinners at our house. It's a wine that just keeps giving ;-)
