Pendore vineyards are located near the town Kemaliye in the Aegean Region. The name Pendore comes from the Latin “pence horyos”, which means “five villages” ”, where the Lydians anciently lived.
Pendore Syrah 2018 is produced from Syrah grapes grown 250 m above sea level where the soil is composed of clay and limestone. The vineyard is located in a special micro-climate where continental and Mediterranean climates meet. Grown with low yield (35 hl/ ha) and harvested by hand at optimum maturity, the grapes are processed with gravity system (transfer of grapes by gravity, without any pumping equipment, thus causing no bruises). Pendore Syrah 2018, matured in French oak barrels for 11 months, significantly reflects its terroir with its full-body, ripe tannins, deepness and persistency.
This premium wine, produced in limited quantity with numerated bottles, is recommended to be decanted for a while and then to be served at 16-18 ºC. It perfectly matches with grilled red meat, spicy sauced red meat and game, casseroles and hard cheeses like Kars gruyere, gouda and emmantel.
