Armenia, Yeraz, Zorah Wines (magnum) - 2017

  • Provenance: Armenia
  • Appellation: Armenia
  • Domain: Zorah Wines
  • Grape variety(ies): Areni Noir : cépage provenant de la zone de Zorah, où il a été 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: 30 years
  • Alcohol degree: 13.5%
Yeraz (the dream, in Armenian) symbolises the wish for a revival of the oldest wine culture and the rediscovery of forgotten places and ancestral indigenous grapes. The wine has a lovely ethereal nose and a fine, elegant and pure taste, reminiscent of the great Pinot Noirs as much as of certain Tuscan Sangiovese with character. A world of spice and red fruit. Fineness and character. Great emotion!

Yeraz is produced without irrigation from more than 100-year-old goblet vines, grown at an altitude of 1600 metres, on phylloxera-free soil, which gives little vigour to the plant, and of a calcareous, sandy nature.


Fermentation takes place via indigenous yeasts, at controlled temperatures, in concrete vats, while maturation is carried out in traditional amphorae of various sizes and in large, unroasted tuns for 24 months, followed by a further 12 months in bottle.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Grilled tuna with ginger - Eggplant and tomato confit pie with Thai lemongrass - Veal tendrons with tarragon.

Liquid geography

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.
