Takar Areni Noir

£18.90

SKU: TAKARARENIRED

Description

The Takar range from Armenia Wine Company celebrates the country's 6200 years of wine history, with varietal wines of native, ancient grapes. This red uses Areni grapes thought to originate from the village of the same name where the oldest known winery in the world was found, dated at least 6,100 years old. Grapes are hand harvested from high altitude vineyards in the Aragatsotn region with short ageing for a youthful wine. 

Cherry red with shades of purple, Takar evokes pleasant spiciness in the nose, with layers of vanilla, liquorice, roasted coffee and clove, alongside fruity cherry and blackberry. The precise palate brings these complexities together with good structure and tannins. Try with lamb, roast chicken, soft cheeses or berry pie desserts.

The family owned Armenia Wine Company strive to balance ancient traditions with the newest technology whilst upholding respect for nature. Founded in 2006 with its own estate vineyards, it is an icon of modern winemaking in Armenia with many award winning wines and the ability to shed light on the ancient winemaking regions and native grapes of the country, that had still remained undiscovered by many. They work in four main winemaking regions – Armavir, Ararat, Aragatsotn and Vayots Dzor.
