Details

Yeraz Karasi Areni Noir, very rare wine, Armenia, ancient single vineyard location 1600 metres above sea level, silky and very fine. The wine is fermented only with indigenous yeast and is aged partially in concrete tanks, partially in large un-toasted wooden casks but mainly in traditional Armenian amphorae (karas) of varying sizes which were sealed with wax and buried partially below ground to maintain a constant temperature. The top wine from Zorah is from their highly prized single vineyard at highest point of the the 15 hectare estate, 1600 metres above sea level which creates an incredible micro climate and results in a unique wine. The vines are over 100 years old and the yield is very low so the wine has concentrated red and black fruits but also elegance to the height of the vineyard which maintains high acidity in the berries. A rare treat from this rising star of far flung wine production.



Zorik Gharibian started this project after 3 years of research to find the best land he could to locate his vineyard. The place is called Vayotz Dzor, the vineyard is 15 hectares, 1400 metres up on the slopes of mount Ararat. The site is located right next to a 6000 year old winery, supposedly the oldest remains of a winery in the world. Long dry summers, good sunlight, high daytime temperatures, cool nights, soils rocky and rich in limestone, everything you need to make high quality wine. The indigenous vines are grown on ungrafted root stocks as the area is unaffected by Phylloxera. This is an incredible wine project and the wines are delicious and getting better with every vintage
