Emir by Kavaklidere Winery
An acidic wine with lots of minerality from Central Anatolia
Emir tends to be grape that results in narrow single dimensioned wines. Which means you either love it or hate it, depending on the your taste preferences. The acidity means it appears as a sparking wine as well.
Wines tend to be dry and typically have a slight green tinge to the color. This varietal has more mouth experience than flavor, meaning the acidity and minerals are felt as much or more than the fruit flavors is tasted. So when trying this one, be open to the feel of Emir not just the taste.
The grapes grow in the ppoular touristic region of Cappadocia, in central Anatolia. The land here is volcanic, with vineyard elevations over 1000 meters and some over 1300 meters. Winters are cold and harsh. But this is a grape adapted to the difficulty.
So when you grab an Emir be sure the grapes are sourced from this area.
