Tasting Note

Here, the two indigeneous 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.

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 in this diverse nation. The wines are made from unique and intriguing local varieties. These indigenous varieties, whilst being ancient to Turkey are now being vinified using modern techniques and are producing award winning results. Anatolian grapes, along with international varieties, are planted in the best sites following the philosophy of terroir. The vineyards and wineries have been significantly invested in. The Elziğ​​ 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 1200 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

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.

Winemaking

The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve the freshness and aromatics of these indigenous varieties.
