Vinbodrum winery is a family run boutique winery located in Kızılağaç, Bodrum. Erhan and Füsün Yürüt are retired traffic controllers who made their dream come true. They started winemaking at home in Ankara in 1980. But it’s only in 2010 that they started this activity on a professional scale to launch their business and produce their first bottles of wine in 2014. For them, its more than just a business, it’s a real passion, shared by their daughter, Dyugu Deniz Yürüt, who joined the team to be in charge of the production.
The winery is run from home and the fermentation tanks are in the lower level of the house. Their wines are unfiltered and can have a kind of rustic taste but they’re impressively well balanced and are really worth to try.
One year and a half ago, when I wrote a post about them, they had 4 vineyards with 6 grapes.
Let’s taste now their Chardonnay 2017 :
A delicately aromatic wine with notes of stone fruit, tropical fruits, buttery brioche and vanilla.
The texture is slightly creamy with a medium acidity and a medium + body.
On the palate, you should get flavours of apple, pear, mango, pineapple and banana with notes of vanilla, nuts and light spice followed by a soft, delightfully clean finish with a touch of saline and minerality.
A delicious lightly oaked Chardonnay that will pair well with fish cakes, salmon, pasta with creamy sauce or mild curries.
Ellerinize sağlık Vinbodrum!
