USING ANCIENT VARIETIES AND WAY OF MAKING WINE, ZORAH'S WHITE BLEND IS A GOLDEN AND VOLUPTUOUS WINE (GENTLY OXIDATIVE IN CHARACTER).
"What a privilege to experience wine like this! Golden in colour, with some fragrant nutty, earthiness of its oxidative winemaking, but ultimately driven by perfume, stone fruit and mandarin flavour. Kept balanced with refreshing acidity, this is a creamy wine with real presence." - Wine House
"Ancient indigenous varieties, archaeological evidence suggests that both Voskeat and Garandmak have been present in Armenia for millennia. Voskeat translates as “golden seed” and is considered queen of Armenia’s grapes. It's a delicate, gold-coloured grape with small, compact, relatively thin-skinned berries and bunches in the shape of a cross. Garandmak means “fat tail” and is one of the most popular grapes. It's a much hardier variety, greenish yellow in colour, with larger, thicker-skinned berries and compact bunches.
Fermentation with indigenous yeasts occurs in large, temperature-controlled concrete vats which are left rough deliberately to favour micro-oxygenation. Ageing then continues in concrete vats for eleven months with a further six months in bottle. Concrete allows the wine to breath over the maturation period." - Zorah
