This is the one with the wild turkey on the front – but not from the States and it is not a spirited turkey indeed it is rather a ‘plain(s)’ turkey for such a wine. Turkey Flat claim to have been one of the ‘first to lead’ the rosé revival and I do remember a rosé being amongst their wines for at least a decade. This wine has a slightly unusual varietal heritage – Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and interestingly Dolcetto apparently all from one dedicated vineyard. Proof indeed that the Schulz family are dedicated to their Rosé. It is a pretty delicate pink with some salmon highlights and cherry & raspberry scents with some minerality showing through. That cherry, strawberry minerality is also evident and lively in the palate.This is a dry rosé with a fine structure and with a nice body weight and fruit concentration for a rosé.
