  • The translation for Boğazkere means “throat burner.”  That is exactly what you will feel when you sip on this wine.  Do you know what causes the burn sensation?  If you answered the alcohol, you are correct.   

    One of the ways SOMM’s determine where a grape varietal is grown is by how much burn sensation they feel on the back of their throat.  Grapes with high alcohol contents usually come from hotter climates.  These hints help the SOMM narrow down the possibilities.    

    Next time you feel that burn sensation, have some fun and take a guess where the wine was made.  If you guess  Turkey, California or Australia, you may be right.
