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 2019

A silky and medium bodied red with aromas of rose petals
and cumin spice on the palate.
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 award-winning 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.
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
conversion took place, resulting in a softer style of wine. The cuvées were blended to
make a harmonious wine.
