A philosophy of minimum intervention was carried out in the winery so that the vineyard’s terroir expresses its true potential. The grapes were carefully hand sorted and underwent 48 hours cold maceration. Fermentation took place at controlled temperatures of 26 to 28°C, followed by 18 months aging in oak. 20% was new oak (13% French, 7% American) and the remaining 80% was matured in neutral oak. The focus was to achieve a wine with balance and liveliness. 

Kayra produces 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 local varieties as well as international ones. These ancient indigenous varieties are being vinified using modern techniques and are producing award-winning results. The vines are planted in the best sites, and the vineyards and wineries have been significantly invested in. The Elazig 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 1,200 barrels, reserved for the aging of special cuvees. 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.
