French oak barrels the flavours and structure of the wine is maintained by applying limited filtration before estate bottling. Sarafin Chardonnay has a rich bouquet and complex, lasting flavour on the palate.

Sauvignon Blanc grapes that are harvested late in the season, are used to create Sarafin Fume Blanc which in turn gives us a full bodied wine
with a complex structure. After the grapes are crushed, “Sur lie” method ıs used where the juice is not filtered and is fermented on its lees in
225 lt barriqes. After the 2-3 week fermentation is completed, the wine rests 2-3 more months on its lees during which the barrels are stirred
periodically to maximize the contact of the lees and the wine. These methods give Sarafin Fume Blanc its true varietal character. The wine

and aged for more than a year in our underground cellars until it reaches its desired maturity. Sarafin Fume Blanc is a rich yet easy to drink wine

Verano - Roses from Doluca

Verano is a rose wine produced by blending Cabernet Sauvignon and Öküzgözü grape varietals. Cabernet Sauvignon, a world famous noble varietal, is known as “the king of red grepes”. This grape variety, cultivated in Doluca’s own vineyards Mürefte (northwest of Turkey), expresses its full-bodied and fruity characterictics in Verano. Named after the remarkable size af its grey-blue fruits; the lively, fruity character of Öküzgözü (literally “ox’s eye) varietal is also fully reflected in Verano. During the production of this wine the grapes were not exposed to the pressing process and only the free run juice was fermented through coom fermentation technique. Verano with its crisp, refreshing and fruity structure invokes the aromas of sour cherry, strawberry and raspberry.
