Turkish wine for a novice isn’t so easy to learn about especially when you are on vacation and confronted by mass choices. Last night, we met a Turkish sommelier who worked on cruise lines for 12 years and he was one of the first wine waiters we encountered. That isn’t entirely correct given last visit we ran into a foreign sommelier who recognized us from Paris, he worked in Ulus 29 and he knows his job.
This wine was suggested to us, aged in French oak for 12 months, not too oaky at all, it has clean fruit, a rich taste and nicely balanced. I think this is the best Chardonnay we tasted in Turkey.
