It’s my first Boğazkere 100%.
This grape is usually blended with Öküzgözü as it is quite rough since the name meaning “throat burner”.
It’s often compared to a French grape called Tannat.
To taste a single vintage made of Boğazkere, I thought Gordias would be the right choice. And I was right.
Let’s taste it together :
On the nose, it’s all black. Black cherry, black raspberry, black berry and black pepper plus a hint of tobacco.
It has a medium acidity with high dense tannins. It’s medium bodied +
On the palate, it has flavours of dark berries, cloves, dark chocolate, pine forest and liquorice.
It’s a complex wine that will pair perfectly with spicy kebabs, lambs and saucy meat dishes.
