Barossa Refreshers

Henschke Eden Valley Julius Riesling 2006
Full-on aromas of lime are enhanced by high acidity in the mouth and long-lasting flavor. Of course the fame for Henschke is with their red wines based on Shiraz. What delighted me most when I visited, however, was the care put into their white wines as well. This wine is all stainless. Produced in Keyneton 12.5% $26.99 at K&L Henschke

Turkey Flat Barossa Valley Rose 2006
The smell of strawberries and cream is delightfully matched by a a broad, round palate with an appropriate hint of residual sugar. This rose is based on 64% Grenache, 19% Shiraz, 11% Cabernet and 6% Dolcetto. They like to show a touch of RS and CO2. Produced by Christie and Peter Schulz in Tanunda 12.5% $15.99 at Traverso’s
