This is 100% Emir (Eh-MEER) grapes grown in the Cappadocia area of Turkey, a place known for its unique peri bacalari (fairy chimneys), that has been making wine for more than 7,000 years. The wine is made using temperature controlled stainless steel fermentation. Slightly light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has Kafir Limes with slight minerality. On the palate, this is slightly viscous. Flavors of grapefruits and limes. Some complexity. Good finish. Overall a highly enjoyable white. It seems like this will last another three to five years but sooner will be better. It will work well with less intense dishes such as Pide, or Turkish bread, stuffed with spinach.
