Narince wine grape
Turkey's best-known native white grape variety, Narince is pronounced Nah-rin-ja. Its name means "delicate" or "fragile", and it comes from the Tokat region of north central Turkey, south of the Black Sea. A vine of many talents, it is also grown for eating, and its leaves are the preferred choice for making dolma.
Pale-skinned, fruity and aromatic, it achieves flavour ripeness before sugar ripeness, which makes it particularly well suited for early-picked, low-alcohol wines. However, it is used for a wide range of styles, including full-bodied, oaked wines akin to Chardonnays, and even botrytised sweet wines.
