"A bracing sparkler, this is filled with crunchy green-grape flavor and zippy acidity. It's a blend of chardonnay and colombard with ten percent kangun, a local hybrid, and it feels both cool and sunny, like the vineyards where it grows, at 3,600 feet in altitude."~JS
"From the Armavir Region in the Republic of Armenia, this extra-brut sparkling wine is a blend of Colombard, Folle Blanche, Chardonnay and Kangun. This sparkling wine has a light color with delicate and elegant bubbles. It displays citrus and fresh aromas with some notes of toasted bread. The intense acidity makes it fresh and easy to drink. Pairs well with appetizers, seafood, sushi and fruit desserts."~Winery Notes
KarasView all from Karas
"Karas is a newly established winery in the West of Armavir Region. Located in the Ararat Valley, between Mount Aragats and Mount Ararat. Armavir is the smallest and the most densely populated region in Armenia. The convenient location and the favourable climate have allowed this thriving region to become the epicentre of agricultural development. Aside from its highly agricultural background, Armavir also holds a rich historical and cultural legacy, thus attracting thousands of natives and tourists each year to well-known sites, such as the Sardarapat Battle Memorial, the religious and spiritual centre of the Armenian Apostolic Church: the Holy City of Echmiadzin. In 2003 the pursuit for developing an inspiring project led us to discover these lands rich in minerals and suitable for high quality wine making. The innovation and technology were key factors in achieving our objective, and as from 2010, the production of Karas allowed us to have our first commercial production and so define a new way in the production of Armenian wines"
