#Narince is one of the most important white wine varieties in Turkey. It is also widely planted for the table. The green leaves of Narince grape variety are used to make “#sarma” which is very delicious meal/dish in Turkish kitchen. #Narince vine leaves are popular to make #sarma, because this leaves are very thin and soft when it is pickled and than boiled.
“Narince was planted 814 ha in 2010, that is making it the most widely planted white wine grape. It is grown in mainly on sandy and gravelly soils along the Yeşilırmak River in the province of Tokat, at altitudes of 600-700 m above sea level. #Narince is also planted in the neighboring provinces #Çorum and #Amasya.”1
Well , if I turn back to the main subject, the wines produce from Narince grape variety are offen oaked, dry and off dry. Typically they are fresh and fruity and can be full bodies. #Narince is with flavour ranging from orange and grape fruit through floral to apple and lime. #Narince can age in oak barrels. It generally blend with international Chardonnay and Semillon varieties.
