KAYRA ÖKÜZGÖZÜ

 

The rising star of Anatolia.

 

This is truly the undiscovered treasure of Turkey, gorgeous acidity and lively bright ripe red fruit aromas are the hallmark of this fantastic wine, just a hint of menthol and exotic spices of the ancient mid orient, supple tannins that integrate seamlessly with the acidity and when decanted for a few minutes. Exciting as it is to taste it is so much more exciting to make. “After years of winemaking i have never been so enchanted by a single grape, I only hope you find it as exciting as myself.” Try this with a great steak or a bit of fine aged cheese, definitely something savory and luscious.
