Pamukkale Senfoni Dry Sultaniye

I am becoming a huge fan of the folks making wine over at Pamukkale. I think this is the fourth wine of theirs I’m reviewing? And so far every one of them has been a win. A few weeks ago I reviewed the semi-dry so this week it’s the Pamukkale Senfoni dry Sultaniye.

Like the semi-dry, the Pamukkale Senfoni dry Sultaniye was a hair sweeter than I’d expect from a pure dry wine but it was definitely a far cry from being sweet. Floral and oaky on the nose and a pleasing goldeny color, the Pamukkale Senfoni dry Sultaniye was nice before I even had my first sip. And after that I wanted another!

I talk a lot about how wine feels on the tongue which is something I don’t think is discussed often enough in tastings. If someone had forewarned me that the Sade was effervescent I’d never have tried it. No worries here though as this Pamukkale Senfoni dry Sultaniye was very silky and just a little viscous on the tongue.

The flavor held hints of oak but not so much as to offend my Chardonnay hating palate. I thought I was tasting some honey and melon but those are apparently not included in the Sultaniye grape flavor profile. The internet said I should be tasting: asparagus, pear, pineapple, floral, mango, lemon, golden and green apples, and hay. So not so much.

Much like the Terra Narince this slipped down quite nicely and before I knew it there was only one glass left, which I just managed to put away for another day.
