Kayra 2012 Öküzgözü (Elazığ) is a deep violet red to the eye, this wine made from native Turkish variety Öküzgözü offers fragrances of raspberry, cranberry and lavender. Kayra is owned by spirits giant Diageo, with vineyards spread throughout Elazig and Sarkoy. This comes from Elazig, in eastern Turkey, where the vineyards start at about 2,500 feet in elevation. This is truly the undiscovered treasure of Turkey, gorgeous acidity and lively bright ripe red fruit aromas are the hallmark of this fantastic wine, just a hint of menthol and exotic spices of the ancient mid-orient, supple tannins that integrate seamlessly with the acidity and when decanted for a few minutes. Try this with a great steak or a bit of fine aged cheese, definitely something savory and luscious.
