Intro to Pasaeli Karasakiz Merlot –
Pasaeli Karasakiz Merlot from Turkey is light to medium bodied with a distinctive aroma of red cherry, cranberry and dried figs. On the palate there is sour cherry freshness and earthiness on the finish.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Karasakiz is native to Kaz Daglari and translates curiously as “black chewing gum”. The grapes come from a single vineyard of clay-loam soil planted at an altitude of 550 metres. Wild yeast fermentation, then aged for six months in French and American oak barrels (not new) prior to a minimum of 6 months in bottle before release.
The producer –
Seyit Karagözoglu founded this family-owned estate in 2000, and after much research found two ideal sites in Kaynaklar, Izmir, and Hosköy, Tekirdag, with the first vines planted in 2002. The former is deemed to be suited to Bordeaux varieties, the latter to native grapes, which have existed in the region for centuries. It is these indigenous varieties of Anatolia and Thrace that Seyit most wants to protect, and we heartily agree because they make brilliant wines. These wines from Pasaeli prove that Turkish wine need not just be the next curiosity, but a genuine challenger to wines from more established origins.
Drink with –
This wine is a very food friendly, pair with grilled chicken dishes, lamb chops and Turkish cuisine.
