Grapes are picked by hand, gently crushed, pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine is kept in contact with the lees in mostly neutral French-oak barrels and aged for 14 months. Vinkara Narince Reserve is bottle aged at the winery for a further 6 months before release.
Vinkara’s Kalecik vineyard is located northeast of Ankara in the Mid- Northern Anatolia province. At an altitude over 2,000 feet the vineyard is surrounded by nearby mountains and the K z l rmak River. The river creates an extraordinary mesoclimate for producing wines with naturally high acidity that are powerfully complex.
