ArmAs Karmrahyut Reserve 2013
Known as the birthplace of the vine, Armenia is also the site of the oldest known winery ruins, 6,100 years old. The number is almost meaningless, but it is considerably older than the Roman, Greek or Egyptian empires. At ArmAs Estate, located at 1,400 meters above sea level in the province of Aragatsotn, winemaker Emilio Del Medico paid tribute to this heritage, participating in the Renaissance winery of Armenia by crer land, the idyllic terroir of our ungrafted vines. The brilliant and intense color of this wine with purplating award-winning elegant wines derived from some of the best natural resources of oue highlights comes from the indigenous Karmrahyut grape that defines the grape's unique characteristic - "Karmir-hyut", which means "red juice" in Armenian. Aged for 22 months in French oak barrels, the feat is a wine with bold aromas of cranberries, cherries, plums and rose petals, with notes of white pepper and cinnamon that induce its complexity. These red fruit and spice flavors complete the sweet tannins and acidity of balanced structure and elegance. A full-bodied blend in wild harmony, with a lasting and persistent finish reminiscent of the generous soil and soul of Armenia.
Grape variety: Karmrahyut, aged for 22 months in oak.
