JA2Z by Trinity White 2018 Areni 60% | Chardonnay 40% 13.5% Alc.
Apart from the three main grape varieties we use as the basis for our 6100 and Eh lines, we are actively working with various indigenous and international cultivars, making some bold experiments and, sometimes, interesting discoveries. The successful trials become basis for some blended or single variety wines produced in small batches.
We work with four French grape varieties – Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay (all grown own-rooted in our vineyards), and over a dozen of ancient Armenian white and red cultivars – Qrdi chakat, Nazelli, Karmir Koteni, Khatun Kharji, Garan Dmak, and others.
The JA2Z by Trinity is not a continuous production line but rather an experimental expression of the true potential of Vayots Dzor terroir, which we are still discovering for ourselves.
Trinity Ancestors Orange Wine 2018
We began the “Natural wine” experiment in 2014. Our “Orange” wines are made according to traditional wine making techniques used in Armenia thousands of years ago, including the fermentation in terracotta vessels, called karas in Armenian, no sulfur addition and long skin maceration times of white grapes after the fermentation is over. We were inspired by the quality and aromatic profile of Voskehat that perfectly fits the idea of skin macerated whites. Its expressive acidity, exceptional complexity and thin grape skin balance the oxidative character and silky astringency of the wine.
