A well flavoured wine with notes of black fruits combined with spice and herbs.

Producer Note

Kayra produces premium wines from the Anatolia region -considered to be the birthplace of wine- and is at the cutting edge of winemaking. The wines are made from unique local varieties as well as international ones. These ancient indigenous varieties are being vinified using modern techniques and are producing awardwinning results. The vines are planted in the best sites; and the vineyards and wineries have been significantly invested in. The Elaziğ winery, located in Eastern Anatolia, was established in 1942 and is dedicated entirely to the production of red wines. The Şarköy Winery in Thrace was built in 1996 and embraces a cellar for 1,200 barrels, reserved for the ageing of special cuvées. Under the guidance of consultant winemaker Daniel O'Donnell, it is Kayra's aim to reveal the true potential of Turkey and to bring their rich history and generous spirit to lovers of fine wine.

 

Vineyard

The Öküzgözü variety, pronounced "O-kuz-goez-zu" is an ancient and indigenous variety to Turkey. Grown in the Elziğ region of Turkey where the soils are red clay with decomposed granite and lime, clay soils. The Keban Dam has a cooling influence on the microclimate.

Winemaking

The wine was matured for 10 months in oak barrels, adding spicy complexity to the final wine.

Tasting Note

Lively bright, ripe red fruit aromas with gorgeous acidity are the hallmarks of this fantastic wine. Just a hint of menthol and exotic spices of the ancient mid-orient combine with supple tannins that integrate seamlessly with the smoothness of the finish. A truly undiscovered treasure of Turkey.
