Golden yellow color with delicate aromas of white lily and magnolia, citrus fruit, quince, white pepper and marked minerality. 
​Bright entrance on the palate with refreshing acidity, followed by a rich mid-palate. The wine lingers on the finish with notes of yellow peach and Armenian apricot.

 

The high altitude vineyard sites of Aghavnadzor, Vayots Dzor allow these three indigenous varieties to ripen perfectly while maintaining a remarkable freshness, resulting in thrillingly unique layers of aroma and flavors.

 

Varietal Composition:

 

80% Voskehat: or "golden berry" is considered the emblematic white variety of Armenia, thriving in high-altitude, rocky soils, known for its longevity with vines living well past 100 years. Thick-skinned berries yield complex and expressive aromatics including the fresh scent of the Armenian Snowdrop flower.

 

10% Khatuni: thick-skinned berries, gives a notable crispness and unique floral expression to the wine.

 

5% Qrdi: a late-ripening variety, bringing a beautiful freshness to the blend.

 

5% Garan Demak: or "sheep's tail" prefers rocky, semi-desert soils; its delicate fruit rounds out the final wine.

 

Elevation: over 1,300 meters (4,000 feet)
