Turkey Flat in Australia’s Barossa Valley is known for its Shiraz. We tried the rosé and were delighted (though at the $20 price point, I expect something good). It’s a dry rosé with an exquisite strawberry flavor and perfume. It’s also elegantly balanced, acidic enough to be refreshing, but pleasurably smooth. This is a blend, with Grenache the dominant grape.


Highly Recommended if you can afford it.

I wonder if “Turkey Flat” is named for the Australian brush turkey, which is unrelated to the American turkey but looks similar. So far as I know, the brush turkey has not become a holiday centerpiece, although the Aboriginal people used it as food.
