Turkey is an intriguing wine region, mostly focusing on exporting its wines to the West of Europe. As the domestic demand for wine is quiet, many of Turkey's vineyards have started to plant international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. However, there is one exception to that: the Kayra Winery.
At Kayra the winemakers are pioneering the true gems of Turkey: indigenous varieties like the spicy, sweet berry fruit of the Okuzgozu variety, the full bodied and rich Buzbag Bogazkere, and the fresh, herbal taste of the Narince style. These wines are undeniably brilliant and credit should go to Kayra for having the guts to pioneer these undiscovered wines.
