2017 Lokum Boğazkere

tasted by Jane Faulkner

Halliday - - Beer -

Highly aro­matic yet de­fined by its tan­nins, and here they’re grainy, tex­tu­ral, ripe and ap­peal­ing. Sur­pris­ingly, it’s not a big wine, if any­thing medi­um­bod­ied, and there’s no oak in­flu­ence so the fruit shines: full of rasp­ber­ries, pome­gran­ate and cher­ries along­side warm earth, dried herbs and spices, es­pe­cially liquorice, fen­nel and aniseed. It’s ul­ti­mately a re­fresh­ing, savoury style, and while not com­plex – which is per­haps more at­trib­ut­able to the young vines – this is one heck of a de­li­cious drink. 91 points.
