Let’s be honest, I’m not always seduced by Paşaeli wines. This sweet Sültaniye though was a pleasant surprise.
This grape comes from a single vineyard where they are dried under the sun. Once it’s done, they are put in stainless steel tanks for fermentation. After fermentation the wine matures for 6 months on its yeast, a procedure called “sur lie”.
The colour is amber. It has hints of honey and dried fig on the nose.
The taste is intense, rich and generous.
Among the flavours I noticed dry fruits like almond but also quince, apricot jam, brioche…
the finish is long and fresh.
it’s like a gourmandise.
It’s the kind of wine I’d drink with pancakes, waffles with some jam or with some fruity pies.
