Kayra Vintage Chardonnay Barrel Fermented

Kayra Vintage Chardonnay Barrel Fermented

Wine: Kayra Vintage Chardonnay Barrel Fermented

Producer: Kayra

Country: Turkey

Region: Aegean / Denizli

Vintage: 2017

Style: White

Blend: Chardonnay 100%

ABV: 14%

Size: 75cl

 

Notes: An elegant, barrel-fermented Chardonnay, showing enticing aromas of tropical fruits enveloped by toasty, smoky notes. The creamy, full-bodied palate is harmoniously balanced with a lively balancing acidity through to a long, buttery finish.

The Chardonnay fruit is grown on the cool, high planes of Denizli & Güney, in the eastern region of Aegean. The vines are grown at 900 metres above sea level where the warm days encourage good concentration of fruit flavour in the grapes, while the cool nights impart a balancing natural acidity & citrus notes to the resulting wine.

The berries from two of Turkey’s more prominent wine regions were whole cluster pressed with only the free run juice & the juice of the first press being vinified. 50% was fermented in stainless steel tank & 50% in barrel. The wine was then matured in barrel, of which 20% was new French oak & the remainder was neutral oak; for a period of 16 months. The blending of the two different vineyards & the two different fermentation styles has resulted in a wine of youthfulness & complexity.

 

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.
