Kavaklidere, Cotes d’Avanos Narince-Chardonnay 2013

Narince is Turkey’s star white variety which used to be more prized for its leaves in making dolma. The 60% used here comes from Cotes d’Avanos, arguably Turkey’s finest single vineyard of the variety: 170 hectares at an altitude of 950 metres on volcanic soils. Full of orange blossom, citrus and apple fruit with a refreshing acidity and creamy roundness from 10 months on its lees in French oak barrels.

Alc 14.5%
