KAYRA VINTAGE OKUZGOZU SINGLE VINEYARD 2011
One of the real treasuries of Turkey.
A juicy red grape that means eye of the bull in Turkish comes from the rugged stony soils of eastern Turkey. It also may very well be an 8000 year old varietal coming from the fertile crescent and the very beginings of civilization.
As a winemaker, I had always felt that Okuzgozu grape will offer much more what he had offered. This feeling had captured me until I took a visit to the vineyard of Sukru Baran. In the last few years during which we have been co-working, we developed a wine which has same fruit characteristics but much more intense and balanced in the vineyard of Baran.
Intensely charming, silky tannins are coming from this vineyard.
This specific vineyard gives us some 200 tons to work with every year, that being said we carry out intensive barrel selection that yields about 12.000 bottles for the Kayra Vintage series wine.
