Notes: Kayra Kalecik Karasi expresses its earthy roots, along with lively fruit aromas of ripe plums & spice. On the palate there is a lightness of fruit, density of texture & soft, silky tannins.

The wine was made from a blend of two regions: 80% of the grapes came from Denizli, in the Aegean region; 20% came from Ankara, in Central Anatolia which is the home of the Kalecik grape.

Aged in stainless steel tanks with lees contact for five months & no oak influence in order to express the character of this native varietal & to highlight the distinct structure, aromas & texture of this unique Turkish grape.

 

Producer Info: Kayra produces premium wines from the Anatolia region – considered to be the birthplace of wine – & 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 & are producing award-winning results. The vines are planted in the best sites; & the vineyards & wineries have been significantly invested in. The Elaziğ winery, located in Eastern Anatolia, was established in 1942 & is dedicated entirely to the production of red wines. The Şarköy Winery in Thrace was built in 1996 & 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 & to bring their rich history & generous spirit to lovers of fine wine.
