Kavaklidere Syrah Egeo 2008

Member Review by JJ Deede:

Just returned from a holiday in Turkey where this was the best red available, turned out to be by some way the best wine we have ever had from Turkey. Happily ordered more each night but had only checked the price with a fellow guest. He'd got it wrng, and we ended up with a bar bill bigger than the cost of our flights. Much cheaper to order here in UK than buy in Turkey. Very well balanced, smooth and full flavoured with interesting peppery edge to good fruit flavours. Will improve no doubt, but we found it was perfect with typical Turkish meat based main courses, grills and casseroles. (Raki is much better with meze though). Well worth a try.

Kavaklıdere Winery, the first private sector wine producer in Turkey, is founded by Cenap And in 1929 in Ankara, it has steadily developed to become Turkey’s leading wine producer. Our company owns 550 hectares of vineyards in the most important wine-producing area of Anatolia, where our professional wine growers strives to maintain the perfect grapes-soil-climate equation and increase the potential of the vines that produce the grapes that have been successful in the production of Anatolian wines for hundreds of years and to introduce wines from international grape varieties grown in Anatolia’s varied micro-climates to achieve their best potential when they are transformed in to wine. As our company celebrates its 80th year, our products are being produced in modern facilities and vineyards located in Ankara-Akyurt, Cappadocia-Gülşehir and Aegean-Kemaliye-Pendore. Kavaklıdere Winery has a storage capacity for 19.5 million liters and exports almost 20% of its production, which consists of 43 different wines, plus two grape juices, to European, American and Far Eastern markets.
