Voskevaz Karasi Collection Haghtanak 2015
The Voskevaz Karasi Collection contains some of Armenia's best and most innovative wines. Combining ancient and modern, the Karasi Collection wines are whole-cluster fermented in massive clay amphora (Karasi) then aged in Artsakh oak barrels. This technique produces highly aromatic and complex wines.
The Haghtanak is made from grapes grown in the Ararat Vally. It is whole cluster fermented in giant amphora with minimal intervention. After fermentation the wine gets 18 months aging in Caucasian oak before bottling.
The 2015 Haghtanak is a dark brooding wine. Oak and black fruits dominate the nose. On the palate, blackberries, vanilla and spice tones. Full-bodied but not overly tannic, this wine should gain complexity over the next 3-5 years.
The 2015 Karasi Collection Haghtanak won a Silver Medal at the 2018 Decanter Magazine World Wine Awards.
