An ancient indigenous variety produces aromas of lightly spiced red fruits following through on the palate, interwoven with an earthy savouriness and dried mountain herbs. Vibrant chalky tannins and a touch of graphite on a long, evolved mineral finish.

As Zorik began to spend time in his native territory, exploring its treasures, travelling among its people and uncovering the country’s secrets and traditions, he came to realise that Armenia had a deep rooted wine culture which seemed to have all but disappeared after years of Soviet rule. Zorik changed his mind about buying a vineyard in Tuscany in favour of returning to his ancestral roots in Armenia. He decided to restore traditional vinicultural values and create truly profound wines which would speak of this magical place. His powerful vision, of creating unique wines with a deep rooted sense of place, has become an integral part of the wineries philosophy and with each new chapter of its story Zorah wishes to expose Armenia’s potential in creating wines which rival the best in the world.
