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
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 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.
