Karasakiz ‘6N’, Pasaeli

The Karasakız variety is native to north Kaz Dağları and this indigenous varietal has grown as bush vines in this area of Turkey for centuries. While often compared to old-vine Zinfandel or Grenache on the palate, there is no genetic evidence to support the claim. Harvested from a single vineyard at an altitude of 550 meters, the wine is fermented with native yeast only before aging for 6 months in French and American oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

The nose is delightful with aromas of cranberry and sweet red cherry. The distinct nose carries over onto the palate – sweet cherry red fruit, sour cherry freshness with a touch of spices and a long fresh finish.
