Armenia, Voski, Zorah Wines - 2021

  • Provenance: Armenia
  • Appellation: Armenia
  • Domain: Zorah Wines
  • Grape variety(ies): Voskèak et Garandmak. Ces deux cépages sont présents en Arménie depuis des millénaires. Voskèak, littéralement "graine d'or", est considéré comme le roi des raisins arméniens, avec sa couleur dorée délicate, ses petites baies et ses grappes en forme de croix. Garandmak est l'un des plus populaires, il est robuste, jaune verdâtre, avec de grosses baies à la peau plus épaisse et des grappes compactes.
  • On-call time: 10 years
  • Alcohol degree: 13.5%
Made from ancient native grape varieties, this wine is vibrant and juicy, opening up in numerous olfactory sequences and presenting a miraculous freshness that comes to us from the high altitudes. Floral and spicy notes announce the colour of a full-bodied, stylish and refined juice that plunges us into the history of wine. A must-try!

Technique

Viticulture

High altitude vineyards: 1400 m. At this height, phylloxera is no longer active, so the vines are free-standing, the cuttings coming from old vines. The low vigour, the rocky and sandy soils, rich in limestone, help to maintain humidity during the very hot and dry summers.

Oenology

2014 is the first vintage produced. Fermentation takes place in large concrete vats without epoxy using only natural yeasts. Aged in concrete vats for 11 months and then 6 months in bottle.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Seafood terrine • Grilled prawns with satay • Poultry, ginger and watercress jus.

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.
