Kayra Versus Okuzgoza, Anatolia 2014

The Kayra Versus Okuzgoza is a concentrated and powerful wine showing notes of black fruits combined with spice and dark chocolate nuances.

Producer Note - Kayra is producing premium wines from the Anatolia region -considered to be the birthplace of wine- and is at the cutting edge of winemaking. The wines are made from unique and intriguing local as well as international varieties. These indigenous varieties, while being ancient to Turkey, are being vinified using modern techniques and are producing award winning results. The vines are planted in the best sites following the philosophy of terroir and the vineyards and wineries have been significantly invested in. The Elaziğ winery, located in Eastern Anatolia, was established in 1942 and is dedicated entirely to the production of red wines. The Å�arköy Winery in Thrace was built in 1996 and 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 and to bring their rich history and generous spirit to lovers of fine wine.

Vineyard - The wines from the Kayra Versus vineyard are a reflection of the viticulture and wine crafting in modern day Turkey. Grown in Alpagut, in Eastern Anatolia, the indigenous Öküzgözü vines (pronounced "Oh-kuz-goe-zu"), are planted on south facing slopes with pebble and clay soils. These vines are now reaching a maturity level which is demonstrating what they have to offer. The vines are handpicked at optimum maturity levels.

Winemaking - A philosophy of minimum intervention was carried out in the winery, so that the vineyard expresses its true potential. The grapes were carefully hand sorted and fermented with meticulous detail. Following fermentation, the wine was aged for a period of 19 months, with 20% aged in new oak and 80% in neutral oak. The focus was to achieve a wine with balance and liveliness.

Tasting Note - A complex nose of rhubarb, cassis and blackberry preserve are combined with subtle overtones of allspice and hazelnut and an intriguing note of pine forest. A concentrated and powerful wine full of high toned red fruits and a long finish.

Serving Suggestion - A great pairing with lamb ribs, grilled steak, filet mignon, rich warming stews and duck confit.

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.
