Armenia, Karasì, Zorah Wines - 2020

  • Provenance: Armenia
  • Appellation: Armenia
  • Domain: Zorah Wines
  • Grape variety(ies): Areni Noir : cépage provenant de la zone de Zorah, où il a été redécouvert à partir de vieilles vignes abandonnées dans un complexe monastique du XIIIè siècle. Originaire du berceau de la viticulture et extrêmement résistant aux maladies, sa particularité est sa capacité à s'adapter parfaitement aux climats continentaux, ainsi que sa peau très épaisse qui, tout en aidant à maintenir l'élégance et la fraîcheur du raisin, le protège également contre les variations brusques de température (40°C le jour/20°C la nuit) présentes à 1375 altitudes pendant les mois d'été.
  • On-call time: 6 years
  • Alcohol degree: 14%
Produced by the idealist Zorik Gharibian from one of the oldest grape varieties in the world, in the land of his ancestors, this Karasì delivers beautiful scents of morello cherry, plum and cinnamon. It enters the mouth enveloped and textured; then it develops on a full body, round, fleshy, all in vinosity, finishing tannic and powerful, but without any heaviness or rusticity. We love it.

Liquid geography

Domain
We are in the cradle of world viticulture, not far from the Areni cave, where the oldest remains of viniculture (over 6,100 years old) were discovered. This is the Rind vineyard, with a cultivated area of 15 hectares. The sandy soils are rich in limestone. The vines are grown in Guyot and although the vines are young, it should be remembered that the selection was made from 80 year old plants! Because of the altitude and climate, the vines are not grafted and are therefore grown free-standing, at a density of 5,000 vines per hectare, with a low yield of 20 hl/ha. Fermentation takes place in large raw concrete vats. This is followed by maturation in amphorae of different sizes, with a short period at the end of the cycle in 31 hl tuns to soften the tannins.
