Mahlep... Our discovery, exclusively from TasteTurkey...

Mahlep is a fortified wine with a special unique taste inspired by the French Wine Maker Jean-Luc Colin... . Mahlab is a spice extracted from the seeds of a variety of sour cherry known as the Mahlep or Mahleb tree. The spice has a distinctive flavour which tastes somewhat like cherries and slightly like almonds, with a hint of a sharp, sour and is exclusively produced by the Diren Winery. 

This aromatised unique fortified wine is produced with extracts from the Mahlep Fruit, this is a cherry-like fruit which grows wild in the mountains near Tokat in Northern Turkey.

Mahalep fruit extracts are expertly blended with red wine produced from Turkish native grape varieties Öküzgözü and Boğazkere. This wine has a distinct nose of figs and cinnamon with a hint of chocolate.
This fantastic blend of red wine combines well with Mahlep fruits for delightful flavours of cherry that works well with cheeses or pastry deserts.

Too much of Eurasia, it is also sometimes called the Saint Lucie Cherry, and it yields distinctive almost black and very sour cherry in the later summer. The fruits of this tree are used in jams, preserves, and desserts, and they can also be dried. To extract the mahlab, the pits are cracked to reveal the small seeds inside. 

Mahaleb fruits are grown on mountains in the Tokat region, known for its aphrodisiac effect and also used for its medicinal properties and in food. Enjoyed as an apéritif with snacks and appetizers before meals and with Turkish coffee after meals.
