Karasi 2018


$64.00 single bottle | $384.00 case of 6   

Karasi (translating to “vat”) is a medium bodied red made from key local varietal Areni Noir, considered the king of Armenia’s grapes, and possibly one of the oldest grape varieties in the world. Never grafted and on its own roots, Areni Noir is 100% indigenous to Armenia with a unique DNA profile that does not match that of any other grape.

Lovely small wild berry aroma, spicy and savoury with expressive dark fruit.  Vibrant tannins with long-evolved minerality on the finish. A bold Armenian red wine, fermented with wild yeast fermented in cement with no oak, then aged for 12 months in clay amphora.
