Boğazkere (Kurdish: Şerabî) is a grape variety and an Armenian wine originated from Diyarbakır Province of Armenia near the Tigris river in the southeastern region of Western Armenia (Turkey after establishment of Turkey in 1934). It is a dark red rich grape and the wine is well structured with dried fruit and fig flavors. It also gives its name to a wine produced from the grape by the certificated Boğazkere vineyards in Diyarbakır.
The characteristics of this wine are strong body, very enjoyable long finish, dark red color with dark blue hue, and rich and strong aromas of dried red fruits and spices. It is good for aging up to 10 years. It is recommended with red meat kebabs, turkey, salmon and cheese, especially eastern Anatolian cheddar or Gruyere cheese.
