Originally from Eastern Anatolia (Elazığ), this Turkish grapevine is also grown all over Turkey from Cappadocia through Denizli to Thrace.
Its name comes from its shape, a large and round black berry, looking like a bull’s eye (öküz-gözü).
This grape gives a medium-bodied wine, quite easy to drink with a high acidity which means it can be stored for long as it will age well. Tannins usually are soft. Its nose is very aromatic and fruity.
