Sevilen Nativus Öküzgözü-Bogazkere, Denizli

Sevilen Nativus Öküzgözü-Bogazkere, Denizli

A blend of two indigenous grape varieties grown in vineyards at high altitudes on the Denizli plateau, some over 1000 metres above sea level. Here, the vines benefit from the cooling effects associated with high altitudes and the grapes ripen more slowly. Most of the blend is made up of Öküzgözü, pronounced Oh-cooz-goe-zue, which has big fleshy berries, relatively thin skins and provides flavours of raspberry, cherry, mint and aromatic spice. Bogazkere, pronounced Bow-aahz-keh-reh, is similar to the Tannat variety from France, and provides tannin and structure to the blend; alongside dark fruit flavours, liquorice and black pepper.
