Kayra Buzbag Reserve 2016

KBR16

New product

A wine which promises enthusiasm: with its dense fruit and lively acidity which gracefully evolve to reveal subtle nuances of exotic spice, leather, cassis and a hint of toasty smoke. The soft silky texture adds to the red forest fruits and savoury notes on the palate with a long, lingering finish.

More info

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 Öküzgözü grapes, which are pronounced "O-kuz-goez-zu" and the Boğazkere grapes- pronounced "Boaz-ker-a" were fermented separately. The wine was aged in oak barrels, 20% were new oak barrels comprising 17% of new French oak and 3% of new American oak; the remaining 80% of barrels were neutral oak. The wine maturation lasted for a minimum of 20 months.
