Mek Areni Reserve 2015
Grapes and the wine come from our winery Mek Wine.
The Armenian Highlands in the south of Armenia, the Vajods Dzor region, guarantees an excellent ripening of the grapes through long, warm summers. The vineyards are located at an altitude of about 1250 meters. The specific flavor is created by the fertile soil, which consists of the volcanic rock and pumice of Mount Ararat (dormant volcano). The soil is very fertile and contains many minerals, making it the perfect breeding ground for making Armenian wines. We still use a completely traditional method.
These Areni native grapes have been used for wine production since prehistoric times. This area is also mentioned in the Bible, which mentions that wine making dates back to the time when ancestor Noah planted a grape along the slopes of Mount Ararat. Archaeologists have found grape seeds and an old winery in the caves of Areni village and have confirmed that they are 6,100 years or older. Our carefully crafted classic Areni Mek is an elegant and excellent red wine, made from hand-selected Areni grapes. This rare wine is aged for 6 months in the famous Caucasian oak barrels. This gives the taste of the wine extra strength.
Tasting Notes: The wine has a deep ruby red color, delicious finish, sweet and silky tannic characteristics and flavors of blueberry, cherry and vanilla. The wine goes well with spicy and / or hearty dishes, different meats and cheese in general.
