Tugra Okuzgozu
Öküzgözü is one of the most promising indigenous varietals of Anatolia and its unique fruity and juicy character is felt quite
prominently on the palate in our Tuğra Oküzgözü wine. The varietal’s crispy nature due to its strong acidity is balanced by its ripe fruit
flavors and hence in Tuğra Öküzgözü it yields a well-rounded, smooth and medium-bodied wine. The grapes - cultivated in our vineyards
in Denizli with a low yield management program - were harvested in early October. This methodology allowed us to harvest these grapes at an optimum acidity and alcohol level. Through cold maceration and cool fermentation we were able to retain Öküzgözü’s characteristics at a maximum level. This wine was matured - 4 months sur lie and 4 months without lees - a total of 8 months in French Oak. Tuğra Öküzgözü wine invokes the aromas and tastes of red forest fruits, sour cherry and plums.
