Kayra Narince 2018
Kayra is producing premium wines from the Anatolia region - considered to be the birthplace of wine - and is atthe 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 ElziÃ„Å¸ winery, located in Eastern Anatolia was established in 1942 and is dedicated entirely to the production of red wines. The ÅÅ¾arköy 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 their rich history and generous spirit to lovers of fine wine.
The Narince variety - pronounced "Na-rin-ja"- is an ancient, indigenous variety to Turkey and is grown in the Tokat region. The soils in the vineyards are gravelly, stony and alluvial with a high lime content, which helps to impart a good level of refreshing acidity to the final wine. The climate in Tokat is mild and moderate due to its location between the Mid Black Sea and Central Antolia.
Fermented in 100% stainless steel vats in order to preserve the naturally occuring acidity of the Narince variety, along with the delicate aromas of this stunning variety. The maturation also took place in stainless steel maintaining the purity of the fruit aromas.
Cool evenings give a mineral focus to a fresh, fruity wine with aromas of Asian pear, quince, camomile and grapefruit.
Pairs beautifully with spicy cuisine and fresh seafood. Also try with creamy pasta dishes, grilled chicken, Caesar salad and shellfish
