Pamukkale Grand Reserve Syrah 2015

Grapes from selected parcels are harvested early in the morning and macerated for 21 days in cooled concrete tanks. Malolactic fermentation takes place in new french oak barrels where it ages for 24 months. Only exceptional vintages are aged.
This grand reserve shiraz is the apple of the eye of this winemaker and comes w/ dark, deep, opaque ruby color w/ violet rims.

Dried figs, extreme jammy tones, slim cinnamon, hints of cloves and vanilla touch form the sweet nose. Barrel effect is perfectly reflected.
The Pamukkale Winery has adopted this principle in its production. The Pamukkale Winery was founded in 1962 by the eldest one of the Tokat brothers, Fevzi Tokat, in the north of the province Denizli in the city of Güney. The Pamukkale Winery is one of the several hundreds of wineries which created and sold barrels of wine in Anatolia in that period. One of the most significant wine cultivation-areas in Turkey is the Güney plateau, through which the River Menderes passes. The climate there is similar to that of the Napa valley, while the condition of the soil is like that in Bordeaux. This plateau, which is 850 m above sea level, is privileged to have moist earth with limestone and pebbles. The company greatly improved in 1972 after another of the Tokat brothers, Yasin, graduated from the agricultural faculty in the area of food and fermentation. It was then that the company took on the management and the responsibility of the production.
