ArmAs Aragatsotn Voskahat 2018

Intense and floral aromas of fennel, green apple, fresh
rosemary and lime are complemented by subtle spice
and mineral undertones, fresh and tingly on the finish.
ProducerNote
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 indigenous Voskehat (pronounced VOSS-g-hat) which translates as
‘The Golden Seed’, has a hardy skin enabling it to thrive in this environment as it copes
well with the hot summers and cold winters. The grapes are manually harvested at
optimum maturity.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully selected to maintain the highest quality. Fermentation took
place at 16 to 17°C with selected yeasts in stainless steel to retain the purity of fruit.
Maturation of eight months on the lees with weekly bâtonnage, imparted texture and
complexity to the resulting wine.
