Kayra Buzbag Reserve 2019
Kayra Buzbag Reserve
Kayra Buzbag Reserve is 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.
“Born in 1944 the blend of two of Turkey’s native grapes came from te direction of Ataturk himself. Where as he requested two of French enologists to review the countryside and identify the possibilities of winemaking in this newly formed country.Bogazkere is the power behind the blend and Okuzgozu is the taming portion of the relationship.Barrel aged for 18 to 24 months it goes into the bottle very powerful with meaty tannins, but given time and patience it softens and smoothes out to more of a raw silky texture and the fruits come out from where they were once hidden. This blend is crafted to age gracefully for years to come and present various personalities as it matures.Much like ourselves…” -Daniel O’Donnell, Consultant Winemaker
