From the Winemakers' Website: The high altitude vineyard sites of Aghavnadzor, Vayots Dzor allow these four indigenous varieties to ripen perfectly while maintaining a remarkable freshness, resulting in thrillingly unique layers of aromas & flavors. Source: Aghavnadzor, Vayots Dzor. 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 & expressive aromatics including the fresh scent of the Armenian Snowdrop flower. 10% Khatuni: thick-skinned berries, gives a notable crispness & 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. Wine profile: golden yellow color with delicate aromas of white lily & magnolia, citrus fruit, quince, white pepper & 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 & Armenian apricot. Winemaking: 100% stainless steel fermentation & aging
