  • Karas Single Vineyard Areni was harvested from vineyards tucked away at the foot of Mount Ararat in Armenia's Armavir region. This ancient terroir is renowned for its volcanic soil, one of the unique benefits to crafting vintages in the birthplace of wine. This wine was fermented and macerated in traditional amphoras, then aged in Armenian oak 14 months, ensuring exciting new level of complexity. Red fruits, pink pepper and herbs - a true expression of the valley.

  • Critics have rated this as the best available among Armavir wines.

    Vineyard notes: "Imagine an omnipotent snow-capped mountain that in its previous life as a volcano would unexpectedly release its wrath. Today, Mount Ararat’s ancient rage has come to benefit Karas Wines. These black volcanic soils are extremely conducive to growing healthy vines whose grapes have a fantastic character and produce a marked identity."
