100% Areni, sourced from Vayots Dzor vineyards under contract to Voskevaz. Fermented in large karasi vessels, then aged 12 months in Artsakh oak barrels.
This wine won a Gold Medal at the Spring 2018 Modus Vini International Wine Awards.
Tasting Notes: Light red color, cherries, bitter herbs and hints of oak on the nose. Gains complexity in the glass. Amazing pure Areni fruit on the palate. Great balance between fruit and oak with a long finish. Not as rich as the 2014, but a stellar example of what the Areni grape can produce.
