The Voskehat Karasi is made with grapes from the Aragatsotn region, where the winery is based. The region has basalt, tuff, and limestone soils. The climate here is hot, dry and windy during the day. However, the altitude of around 1,100 meters above sea level provides the necessary balance with cooling nights. The region is the original home of the Voskehat grape variety. The Karasi Voskehat is made with grapes grown on vine that are approximately 100 years old, which are hand harvested and then fermented in traditional 800-1200L Karas. Malolactic conversion is avoided, and the wine ages for about 6 months in 500 liter oak barrels of local origin. This wine is bottled unfiltered, only racked through natural sedimentation.
Tasting Notes: Delicate aromas of citrus and flowers are balanced by notes of toasty oak on the nose. The palate is fuller bodied yet energetic, with layered flavors of citrus and pear. Creamy in texture, finishing with elegant lift. Alcohol 13.5%."
