Kayra produces premium wines from the Anatolia region -considered to be the birthplace of wine- and is at the cutting edge of winemaking. Kayra wines are made from unique local varieties as well as international ones. These ancient indigenous varieties are being vinified using modern techniques and are producing award-winning results. The vines are planted in the best sites; and the vineyards and wineries have been significantly invested in. The Elaziğ 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 1,200 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.
A bold and concentrated wine with lashings of ripe cherries and dried plums which are enhanced by notes of toasted bread and cedar. The powerful palate displays intense fruit flavours framed by structured tannins and a long, full finish.
Lively bright, ripe red fruit aromas with gorgeous acidity are the hallmarks of this fantastic wine. Just a hint of menthol and exotic spices of the ancient mid-orient combine with supple tannins that integrate seamlessly with the smoothness of the finish. A truly undiscovered treasure of Turkey
Öküzgözü and Boğazkere complement one another beautifully and the harmony of this blend truly reflects the nature of Eastern Anatolia. Öküzgözü, with its dark skinned grapes and generous acidity pairs with Boğazkere and its intense tannins, fruit driven and spicy character. This is a well balanced wine, with cherry and red fruit flavours in an easy drinking style.
Kayra Kalecik Karası expresses its earthy roots, along with lively fruit aromas of ripe plums and ginger flower. On the palate there is a lightness of fruit, density of texture and soft, silky tannins.
