New product

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.

Together, they make a full-bodied, intense red wine that marries well with food and can benefit from time spent in cellar.

The two varieties both hail from the high-altitude plains surrounding Ankara in central Turkey. Öküzgözü is usually used as a blending variety for its high acidity, and is seen combined with all variety of native and international varieties. Boğazkere is more commonly seen by itself, although blends with Öküzgözü are becoming more common, sometimes with some Syrah added as well.

In the blend, Boğazkere provides power and dense color, hefty tannis and dark-fruit and licorice flavors. Öküzgözü adds panache and elegance, with its vivid red fruit flavors that lift the wine and soften the tannins, and a brisk acidity that adds the focus its blending partner lacks. These wines are commonly aged in oak barrels which further soften the tannins and adds some extra spice characteristics.
