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.
Grown in the Denizli region where the soils are clay loam and calcareous at high
altitude. With hot dry summers and mild winters, the cooler microclimates are to be
found at elevation. The Shiraz grapes are grown in several vineyards, each bringing
their own characteristics to the final blend.
A modern approach to winemaking allowed the distinct structure, aromas, textures
and flavours of the specific winegrowing regions of Turkey to express themselves. The
wine was matured for a minimum of six months in oak barrels adding complexity to
the final wine.
A modern style of Shiraz showing spicy tones and a fruit driven character
complemented by vanilla oak.
This wine partners well with roasted game, fajitas, spicy red meat dishes, grilled red
meats, pastas with mushroom sauces and hard, aged cheeses.
