Narince is a distinctive Anatolian white grape variety known for its strong aromas, structure and
aging potential. It gained this strong reputation after being produced as a varietal monocepage
wine by Kavaklıdere for the first time.
Côtes d’Avanos Narince is produced from Narince grapes grown in Cappadocia Côtes d’Avanos
Vineyard. The vineyard is 900 m above the sea level where the soil is composed of calcer and tufa
formed by the breakup of volcanic rocks. The high temperature difference between day and night
encourages good maturity, good acidity and the aromatic structure. Grown at a low yield (30 hl/ha)
and harvested by hand at optimum maturity, Narince grapes are processed with a gravity system
(transfer of grapes by gravity, without any pumping equipment, thus causing no bruises).
Being fermented in 500 and 225lt French oak barrels and with 9 months of aging on the lees
(“élevage sur lies”), Côtes d’Avanos Narince 2018 significantly reflects its terroir.
This premium wine perfectly matches with steamed fish, pasta with white sauce and white meat
and soft yellow cheeses. It is best when served at 6-8°C.
Aroma: Rich with intense citrus fruit, honey, yellow flower aromas and pronounced oaky notes
Taste: Full-bodied and lively with rich flavours, elegant and long
