Hin Areni Reserve 2017 (Areni Noir)
Areni Noir 100%
Hin Areni Reserve is the concentration of all the good circumstances that great Areni wines enjoy. The Areni Noir grapes are harvested manually in the small plot of the mountainous vineyard of the eponymous village Areni, the cradle of this grape variety. A very reduced yield and a careful selection of the grapes. Aged in local oak barrels.
A ruby color, a fresh nose with notes of ripe cherry and plum. Fruits, spices and freshness in the mouth. A must-have Areni Noir.
Vayots Dzor Region and Areni village in particular has been the cradle of Armenian winemaking for millennia. The findings give the grounds to assert that Armenia is one of the ancient areas where grape cultivation, processing and wine-making was developed.
A 6,100-year-old winery was discovered in 2007 in the the village of Areni. Areni is in the same time the name of a village, an indigenous grape variety and wine appellation in the southern part of Armenia.
“Hin Areni” vineyards are situated at an elevation of 1215-1250 meters above the sea level, in and around Areni village. Long dry summers, with remarkably vivid sunlight and high daytime temperatures contrast with cool nights encouraging a lengthy growing season and pushing harvest to the end of October.
At “Hin Areni” we create wines from indigenous grape varieties coming from centuries: Areni and Voskehat. We strive to ensure that grape is given the chance to show its beauty and express the essence of the terroir. The sedimentary and rich volcanic soil, coupled with high elevation climate of Areni gives our wines an expressive aromatic bouquet and bold structure.
