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 plum like dark skinned grapes and generous acidity pairs with Boğazkere and its intense tannins, fruit driven and spicy character. A well balanced wine, with cherry and red fruit flavours in an easy drinking style.

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 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.
Overall the 2016 vintage saw less rain and a hotter, drier summer than on average. This resulted in small clusters of healthy and concentrated berries, which reached very good maturity 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 metres by 2 metres, with an east to westerly orientation. The majority are pruned according to the bush Gobelet system or modified Gobelet, with some vines trained on a trellis.
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 integrity of their varietal characteristics. Malolactic fermentation took place, resulting in a softer style of wine. The cuvées were blended to make a harmonious wine.
