ArmAs Aragatsotn Karmrahyut 2014

Vibrant aromas of lavender, rose petals and fresh herbs
lead to an opulent and well-flavoured palate with ripe
red fruits complemented by chocolate notes and a dry,
fresh 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 6100 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-gotsart'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 texture prior to eight months ageing in stainless steel. The wine was
made in an unoaked style to preserve the purity of fruit and characteristics of the
Karmrahyut variety.


Tasting Note
A superb example of Karmrahyut, showing intense aromas of mature red fruits, rose
petals and spice which prelude a palate of pure energy. This powerful, full-bodied
wine achieves excellent balance with firm tannins and finishes on notes of honey,
