A lovely Kalecic Karasi from Turkey


A lovely Kalecic Karasi from Turkey

Really enjoyed this lighter red wine, made from a Turkish grape variety called Kalecic Karasi. Great value, too. [Also slightly illegally labelled, with an alcohol level declared on the label of 13.4% – should be either 13 or 13.5.]

Vinkara Kalecic Karasi 2011 Anatolia, Turkey
Pale coloured. Lovely red cherry, spice and herb notes on the nose, with a hint of cinnamon and anise. The palate is fresh, supple and pure with lovely smooth red cherry fruit. Sappy and fresh, it’s sort of half way between a red wine and a rose, and it’s utterly delicious. So drinkable. 89/100 (£9.50 The Wine Society)

  1. Jamie – why must the alcohol be labeled either 13 or 13.5% rather than a “supposedly” more accurate 13.4%?
