Kayra Kalecik Karasi Blanc de Noir 2018

Kayra is producing premium wines from the Anatolia region - considered to be the birthplace of wine - and is at the cutting edge of winemaking in this diverse nation. The wines are made from unique and intriguing local varieties. These indigenous varieties, whilst being ancient to Turkey are now being vinified using modern techniques and are producing award-winning results. Anatolian grapes, along with international varieties, are planted in the best sites following the philosophy of terroir. The vineyards and wineries have been significantly invested in. The Elzig winery, located in Eastern Anatolia was established in 1942 and is dedicated entirely to the production of red wines. The Sarkoy Winery in Thrace was built in 1996 and embraces a cellar for 1200 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 its rich history and generous spirit to lovers of fine wine.

Vineyard

The wine was made from a blend of two regions: Ankara, which is the home of the Kalecik grape; and Denizli. Situated in the middle of the country, Ankara has a continental climate with hot summers and cold winters and has pebbly clay soils in the vineyards. The vineyards of the Denizli region, which borders Greece, also experience a continental climate. The soils in the Denizli vineyards are cooling clay-loam, which are calcareous at high altitudes, providing good water retention and drainage for the vines. The vines are pruned according to the Cordon system and are planted in a north-south orientation.

Winemaking

Kalecik Karasi means Black of Kalecik and is pronounced "kahle-djic-cah-ah-ser". These blue-purple, medium-sized grapes were harvested at optimum phenolic maturity. The berries were cold-soaked for three days, prior to a cool fermentation which took place in 100% stainless steel, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks, in order to express the untouched character of the Anatolian varietal and to highlight the distinct structure, aromas and texture of this unique variety.

Tasting Note

Kayra Kalecik Karasi expresses its earthy roots, along with lively fruit aromas of finger bananas, ripe plums and ginger flowers, which lead through to a lightness of fruit, density of texture, and soft, silky tannins on the palate.

Serve at 14-16°C with a slow-roasted lamb shank, grilled red meats, barbecued fish or roast duck.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
