The Emir grape only grows in one place in the world – Cappadocia, Turkey. The Turasan winery is located in the heart of Cappadocia giving it a natural advantage in producing the freshest and finest Emir. Emir thrives in Cappadocia’s volcanic soils and benefits from its unique micro-climate: high altitude, hot days and cool nights. The nose has notes of citrus peel and white flowers along with pears and fennel pollen. Emir is often compared to Pinot Grigio and Albarinio
Chamlija Papas & Pinot$11.95
Chamlija Vinery is located high on the Strandja Massif near where European Turkey meets Bulgaria. Owned by Mustafa Çamlica, he specializes in the rare and ancient grape variety called Papaskarasi. His family has been growing grapes in the area since 1936. He believes that grapes are the language of wine, and if the rare varieties are allowed to disappear, then we will become a bit more silent. His daughter Irem provides the artwork for the labels, making Chamlija a truly family winery.
Turasan Okuzgozu & Bogazkere$11.95
The traditional Turkish blend of Bogazkere and Okuzgozu really does provide the best of both worlds. The Bogazkere gives the wine structure, power and backbone, while the Okuzgozu provides fruit, lift and aroma. In Turkey wine is meant to go with food, and the Bog/Ok blend compliments the wide
array of foods that is Turkish cuisine.
Turasan Kalecik Karasi$11.95
Kalecik Karasi is a blue-black grape indigenous to Turkey and known for producing red friot-forward wines with low to medium tannins and bright acidity.
Cappadocia is located on high altitude with limited water supply allowing the grapes to take longer in reaching maturity thereby making the aromas of
red fruit, raspberry, red currant and cherry all the more intense and vibrant. Due to its red fruit orientation and light to medium body, this varietal is often compared to Pinot Noir.
