"Kara Sevda" is a tribute to the centuries-old love affair between Papaskarası and the city of Istanbul, where its wine-drinking inhabitants enjoyed the charming wines made from this grape in their tavernas. Once the king of wines in Istanbul, Papaskarası was almost lost until recently, when it was rescued and brought back alive and to the quality it deserves. Blind Love is a red that shares qualities with some of the finest Italian wines: structured, elegant and full of character. Hearty-yet-elegant, expect carnations, violets, and warmly spicy aromas with a smooth, viscous and grippy palate of blueberries, dark cocoa, clove and herbs.
Pairs beautifully with: Moussaka, lamb tagine, mozzarella pizza, bean and pulses casserole topped with garlic bread, steak sandwich or pasta in tomato sauce.
Cheese pairing: Comte or smoked cheese.
