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

Buzbağ means Ice Vineyard and takes its name from the ice caves of Harput, a historic city in Eastern Anatolia. The Emir grapes were grown in the Nevşehir vineyard and the Narince grapes (pronounced "Na-rin-ja") were grown in the Tokat vineyard

Winemaking

The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve the freshness and aromatics of these indigenous varieties.

Tasting Note

The two indigenous Anatolian grapes Emir and Narince are blended to create Buzbağ White. The delicate aromas of Narince with its lemon, freshly squeezed grapefruit, hints of apricot and lychee enhance the eccentric flavours and the rich texture of the Emir variety. A refreshing and well balanced palate of crisp apples and pears, shows an underlying mineral freshness.
