Gordias 2012 Kalecik Karası, Merlot, Boğazkere : Gordias is a boutique winery situated near Ankara that makes wonderful wines and is surprisingly not very well known.
This incredible blend of Merlot and two local grapes (Kalecik Karası and Boğazkere) is properly amazing. The nose has earthy notes of wood and smoke. I’ve also detected some hints of black cherry and plum. Once in the mouth the texture will amaze you. It’s smooth, the tannins are soft and the long finish has flavours of mushrooms and meat juice. I really fell in love with this wine.
Make sure to open it one hour before drinking.
