Diren Okuzgozu 2017 (Drinks like a California Pinot Noir!)
Drinks like a California Pinot Noir!
Since the inception of the winery in 1958, Diren's focus has largely been on the indigenous varietal of Turkey. Okuzgozu is known to be a grape with little tannic structure, and is dominated by red and black fruits and round mouthfeel and body. Made entirely from fruit grown in Elazig, this pure Okuzgozu leaves a taste of cherries on your palate, as well as many other ripe fruits.
Öküzgözü has rounded, dark colored grapes, which are the largest among the grape varieties grown in Turkey. The Turkish word öküzgözü literally means "ox eye".
