To all the wine lovers: In 2023 The Drink Business Magazine named Chamlija best Cabernet Sauvignon producer of the year! Do you need more convincing?
This amazing Turkish red wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that were hand picked and harvests on 26th of 2016 and aged in French barrels for 24 months. This wine is unfined and unfiltered. It is named after Belgian-born Romani-French Jazz guitarist and composer Django Reinhardt. The wine label depicts to the ‘Sultan of Strandja‘, a reference to Reinhardt’s album the’ Sultan of Swing‘. Mustafa Camlica explained ‘the reason we dedicate wine to this extraordinary musician is because he lost two fingers in a caravan fire at the age of 18, and his misfortune caused him to develop in further, rather than destroy his great talent. This is quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon from Chamlija Winery. This Turkish red wine has very deep dark colour- no light can penetrate it. On the nose we can taste blackberries, boysenberries, liquorice, crème de cassis, vanilla, oak, it is very rich at this same time it is very fresh, tannins is huge like avalanche, however it has very integrated acidity, extremely long and sweet finish. It is perfect for aging. Each bottle comes specially packaged in its own wooden box.
