Sevilen Plato Syrah Öküzgözü 2017

The Sevilen Plato is the flagship wine of the estate and is a blend of Syrah (65%), Öküzgözü (30%) and Petit Verdot (5%), with grapes sourced from Sevilen’s finest vineyards high up on the Denizli plateau. The low-yielding vines are planted at a high density on clay and limestone soils. The grapes were picked by hand and underwent fermentation in stainless-steel tanks at 24-25°C, with ten days’ maceration on the skins. After fermentation, the wine underwent twelve months’ ageing in 225-litre, medium toast, French oak barrels. Initially there is an abundance of blackberry, plum and mulberry fruit flavours, which give way to elegant and savoury notes of spice. The tannins are finely grained and give weight and substance to the mid-palate and the finish is rich and lengthy, befitting of this flagship blend.
