Tasting notes - Öküzgözü and Boğazkere complement one another beautifully and the harmony of this blend truly reflects the nature of Eastern Anatolia. Öküzgözü, with its dark skinned grapes and generous acidity pairs with Boğazkere and its intense tannins, fruit driven and spicy character. This is a well balanced wine, with cherry and red fruit flavours in an easy drinking style.

Kayra Buzbag Anatolia Okuzgozu Bogazkere 2018

A medium bodied and spicy red with raspberry and
cranberry fruits and a bite of dryness on the finish.


Producer Note
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 awardwinning results. The vines are planted in the best sites; 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 Şarköy 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.


Vintage
2017 was a hot year in Anatolia, which reduced disease pressure in the vineyards.
The effects of the continental climate were pronounced in 2017, with greater diurnal
temperature differences imparting higher natural tannins and intense aromas. The
grapes were in excellent health at harvest with high natural sugar levels.


Vineyard
The grapes are grown in Elazığ, Eastern Anatolia and Diyarbakır, south eastern
Anatolia, where the climate is continental with cold winters and hot summers. The
vineyards sit at an altitude of 900 metres above sea level and are made up of red
stony and clay soils. The vines are between 15 to 20 years old and are planted at a
density of 4 x 2 metres, with an east to westerly orientation. The majority are pruned
according to the bush Gobelet system with some vines trained on a trellis.


Winemaking
The two varieties: Öküzgözü, (which is pronounced ‘O-kuz-goez-zu’) and Boğazkere,
(pronounced ‘Boaz-ker-a’) were vinified separately. Each underwent a cold soak
and maceration for two days to extracts aromas and flavour. Fermentation took
place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of fruit.
Malolactic fermentation took place, resulting in a softer style of wine. The cuvées
were blended to make a harmonious wine.


Tasting Note
Öküzgözü and Boğazkere complement one another beautifully and the harmony of
this blend truly reflects the nature of Eastern Anatolia. Öküzgözü, with its dark skinned
grapes and generous acidity pairs with Boğazkere and its intense tannins, fruit driven
and spicy character. This is a well balanced wine, with cherry and red fruit flavours in
