and exotic bouquet of cranberry, cherry, plum, dried
lavender and spice enhanced by balsamic notes and a
robust finish.
Producer Note
Armenia is considered to be the birthplace of wine, with biblical references to the
region being planted with vines. Armenia also hosts the site of the oldest known
winemaking ruins, which date back 6,100 years. Founded by Armen Aslanyan, ArmAs is
revitalising Armenia's historic winemaking legacy. Situated on the 45th parallel, the
estate covers 180 hectares of stunning vineyard and orchards, on an undulating terrain
of complex soils set against the backdrop of Mount Ararat. Winemaker Emilio del
Medico pays homage to this heritage by creating elegant and distinct wines from
estate grown native varieties.
Vineyard
The ArmAs estate is located in the Aragatsotn Province (pronounced ARRA-got-sart'n),
with vineyards ranging from 700 to 1,900 metres above sea-level. The altitude promotes
a long ripening period; the vines produce concentrated fruit nourished by 300 days of
sunshine per year, balanced by a freshness created by the cool summer nights. The
ungrafted vines are planted in soils comprising 30 layers of volcanic, limestone and clay
composition. The vineyard is made up of native varieties; and the indigenous
Karmrahyut (pronounced KAR-mayut) really thrives in this terroir. Karmrahyut means ‘red
juice’ in Armenian, which is demonstrated in the deep red colour of its wines. The
grapes are manually harvested at optimum maturity.
Winemaking
After meticulous selection, the grapes were fermented at controlled temperatures of 25
to 27°C with selected yeasts. Lees contact with monthly bâtonnage gave the wine a
rich, textured body. Aged for a total of 24 months, the wine was transferred to Artsakh
oak barrels for 12 months, which impart subtle vanilla, cinnamon, clove and caramel
characters; followed by a further 12 months in French oak, which delivered delicate
oak spice.
