Exotic and textured, a deep and rich wine with great fruit and firm long finish and great tannins.
Possibly one of the oldest grape varieties in the world Areni has been present in Armenia for millennia.

In fact in the archaeological excavations of Areni Cave in Vayotz Dzor, Armenia ( dating back 6000 years) pips and stems were unearthed, carbon dated and the DNA analysed. It was established that the modern day Areni variety can be traced back to these ancient pips. Never grafted and on its own roots it is 100% indigenous to this land & with a unique DNA profile that does not match any other. Extremely resistant to disease and with a very thick skin Areni Noir has developed the unique capacity to adapt perfectly to the extreme climate of Vayotz Dzor, its natural habitat.
