This is really good and a mile away from what you might expect from Turkey. Lovely fresh floral, pink grapefruit and grassy hints on the nose and beautifully balanced palate of lemony, sherberty Sauvignon with minerals and real length.
It is the name of Sevilen Vineyards, which was established on Guney Plateau, at 900 metres above sea level. This wine is single vineyard (estate wine) and high-segment (for which good agricultural practices are conducted) and limited-production.
A blend of two grape varieties both indigenous to Turkey. The two are exceedingly complimentary: Boğazkere is noted for its strong tannins and structure, while Öküzgözü makes bright, fruit-driven red wines. Together, they make a full-bodied, intense red wine that marries well with food and can benefit from time spent in cellar.
100% Misket. This has a fairly pleasant nose, which is a touch confected and a touch sugary. Rather thin palate, but it’s reasonably fresh and more delicate than I was expecting. Good/Very Good. 85/100
