This is made from the white grape Narince (Nah-rin-djeh) which translates to 'delicately' in Turkish. It is produced in Anatolia in the Tokat area of the Black Sea wine growing region next to the Halys river. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has lemons and minerals with a touch  of lumber.  Slightly viscous in texture.  This is dry with a perception of sweetness.  Very little acidity, it comes off a bit flabby.  On the palate, lemon candy and mineral notes.  With air, some grapefruit.  A moderately long finish.  Just guessing, but it seems like this should be consumed in the next two to three years.  This will work better with food.  Grilled fish with fresh squeezed lemon would work well.
