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 years of research, after choosing to return to his ancestral roots in Armenia, rather than buying a vineyard in Tuscany. His aim was to revive the deep rooted wine culture which was all but lost with Soviet rule. His 15 hectare estate is 1400 metres up on the slopes of mount Ararat 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. The wines are made using traditional clay pots called Karas, using indigenous grape varieties.
