Tasting notes - The two indigenous Anatolian grapes Emir and Narince are blended to create Buzbağ White. The delicate aromas of Narince with its lemon, freshly squeezed grapefruit, hints of apricot and lychee enhance the eccentric flavours and the rich texture of the Emir variety. A refreshing and well balanced palate of crisp apples and pears, shows an underlying mineral freshness.

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.
The 2017 in Anatolia was characterised as being very hot, which reduced any disease pressure in the vineyards. The grapes were in excellent health at harvest with high natural sugar levels. Vineyard Buzbağ means Ice Vineyard and takes its name from the ice caves of Harput, a historic city in Eastern Anatolia. The Emir grapes were grown in the Nevşehir vineyard and the Narince grapes (pronounced "Na-rin-ja") were grown in the Tokat vineyard.
The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve the freshness and aromatics of these indigenous varieties.
