Harvested from to single vineyards, each variety is fermented separately in stainless steel tanks using native yeasts. Matured in 225l French oak barrels for 3 months and bottle aged for 3 months prior to release.

The wines are all made from fruit coming from single vineyards. Paşaeli wines emphasize fruit intensity, and balance. Lush and enticing upon release, they will age well for a number of years and will continue to develop complexity with cellaring.
