Swollen, some split, others shrivelled – a bunch of Okuzgozu grapes (one of Turkey’s unique and indigenous varieties) rejected at the recent harvest and left on the vines. If the term “Good Golly Miss Molly” was invented for something it was after eating a couple a couple of these beauts. A lovely sweet, fresh flavour and I would defy anyone just to eat a single solitary grape. So delicious plucked straight from the vine one wonders why the producer doesn’t offer bunches of these as eating grapes?
The hand model in this instance is Sophie Mclean. The vines belong to the Kavaklidere estate in Cappadocia, Turkey, visited as part of the 2012 European Wine Bloggers Conference.
