KEUSH "ORIGINS" BRUT SPARKLING ARMENIA
92 points Wine Advocate:"The NV Keush Sparkling is a terrific wine, as well as a screaming value. Classy notes of white flowers, stone fruits, and obvious minerality flow to a ripe, textured, balanced sparkler that has way more depth, richness, and length than the price point would have you believe. Drink it over the coming year or two." (JD, 08/2018)
This unique sparkling wine comes from the Vayodz Dzor region of Armenia where the soil is predominantly limestone and volcanic rock. It is a blend of Khatoun Kharji and Voskehat, two indigenous Armenian grape varieties and made in the Champagne method with secondary fermentation in bottle and 18 months aging on the lees. It is an elegant sparkler with notes of lemon, golden apple and pear accented by white tea and jasmine. A creamy mousse and dry, mineral-laced finished makes this perfect for an special occasion.
About: Approximately 1800 meters above sea level, on Armenia’s southwestern border, lies Khachik, a rural community home to panoramic mountainscapes, just over one thousand villagers, and at 1800 m, one of the highest elevation vineyards in the world to produce méthode traditionnelle. "Origins" represents the perfect storm of limestone soil and volcanic rock growing idyllic crisp white grapes, ripened by sunlight from high elevation vineyards.
Voskehat, meaning ‘queen- berry’ thrives in high-altitude, rocky soils. It is known for its vine longevity, easily living up to 100 years. Voskehat is terroir-driven and a native to the Armenian land. It is known to produce elegance and acidity in wines.
Khatouni, is a rare variety that grows well in the Vayots Dzor of Armenia. This variety is highly productive in the region’s terroir and is used to craft wines with a crisp, bright finish.
A product born from a 6,000 – year- old viticulture history, Origins embodies the bold Armenian soul and its wine loving spirit.
