Kayra is producing premium wines from the Anatolia region -considered to be the birthplace of wine- and is at
the cutting edge of winemaking in this diverse nation. The wines are made from unique and intriguing local
varieties. These indigenous varieties, whilst being ancient to Turkey are now being vinified using modern
techniques and are producing award winning results. Anatolian grapes, along with international varieties, are
planted in the best sites following the philosophy of terroir. The vineyards and wineries have been significantly
invested in. The Elziğ 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 1200
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 two varieties Öküzgözü, which is pronounced "O-kuz-goez-zu" and Boğazkere, pronounced "Boaz-ker-a"
were fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the integrity of their varietal characteristics. Blended to
make a harmonius wine.
Öküzgözü and Boğazkere varietals, when blended complete one another and the harmony of this blend truly
reflects the nature of Eastern Anatolia. Öküzgözü with its plum like dark skinned grapes and generous acidity
complements Boğazkere with its intense tannins, fruit driven, spicy and tar-like aroma character. A rich wine,
with sour cherries, blackberry through to a well balanced and softly structured palate.
The perfect accompaniment to grilled red meat, kebabs, meat dishes with richly flavoured sauces and traditional
