After the Çakal, now this Narince grown on old vines as well situated in a single vineyard this time in Çeşme, not far from Izmir. This is the second of a serie of four skin contact (aka orange) wines made by Paşaeli I tried
On the nose, it’s quite shy at first with aromas of orange, quince, ripe green apple and acacia.
This Narince has had 22 days of skin contact.
This gives a medium full bodied wine with round tannins and a bit of salinity.
Flavours are rich in the mouth with grapefruit, fresh grape, plumeria, honey and walnut.
Citrus and floral in the end.
A food friendly wine that paired well with this organic chicken in a semi sweet citrus sauce.
Paşaeli shows once again its innovative spirit. I really liked this wine.
