The grapes to produce Beyaz Kalecik Karasi Rosé Kayra were harvested at optimal ripeness and those from the first part of the harvest were used to make this pale pink wine. Beyaz Kalecik Karasi Rosé- Kayra is a blanc de noir produced from the indigenous red variety, Kalecik Karası, which is pronounced as “kahle-djic-kah-ahser”. Only the free run juice from the initial pressing was used, the must was then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, preserving the freshness and aromatics in the wine.
The grapes are sourced from the Denizli vineyard which is characterised by high altitude and clay and calcareous soils.
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.
