Armenian Red Wine - Armavir Region 

Karas Single Vineyard Areni was harvested from vineyards tucked away at the foot of Mount Ararat in Armenia's Armavir region. This ancient terroir is renowned for its volcanic soil, one of the unique benefits to crafting vintages in the birthplace of wine. This wine was fermented and macerated in traditional amphoras, then aged in Armenian oak 14 months, ensuring exciting new level of complexity. Red fruits, pink pepper and herbs - a true expression of the valley.

ARENI NOIR GRAPE INFORMATION



Star variety in the eponymous region. The Areni Noir grape is one of the most beautiful symbols of a heritage viticulture whose origin is lost in the mists of time. For thousands of years this grape has survived the harsh climatic conditions of a high altitude region by developing its character thanks to the sedimentary and volcanic soils of the region. Some of his 120 year old vines are still found in Armenia. Areni Noir is mainly widespread in the western part of the Vayotz Dzor region, along the Arpa river. This old variety comes from the same gorge where the oldest cellar in the world (4100 BC) was discovered.
