Sarafin Turkish Wine in NYC?

sf2nyc | Jun 3, 200809:43 PM     7

To be honest, I did not think I would find a decent glass of wine in Istanbul and I was pretty much right, until I went to Mehmet' Gur's restaurant Mikla and discovered Sarafin. As a sidenote, Mikla is simply amazing - it has the whole package - great food, amazing wine, and breathtaking views.

OK, back to the dilemma at hand...

The Sarafin Chardonnay was perhaps one of the best (if not the best) Chardonnay I have had. Perfectly buttery and smooth. Oh how I wanted to buy a case and bring it with me, but alas, I was not traveling directly back to the States and it could not be done. And I have now come to realize that the winery only ships to consumers within Turkey. Hence, I am wondering if any wine shops or restaurants carry Sarafin in Manhattan. Any tips or suggestions for places to look would be highly appreciated. And, if you do run across it, I highly recommend you give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks in advance....
