FREE shipping on any 6 or more bottles...
Koor Reserve is a traditional blend of indigenous Armenian varietals, grown in high-elevation vineyards of Vayots Dzor and Artsakh. The primary and signature grape – Areni – is elegant, fruity and subtle. It is well balanced with more tannic grape – Sireni – giving Koor its defined structure. Koor Reserve has been aged in French oak for over 20 months, giving the wine more complexity and character. Areni’s natural acidity keeps the wine fresh, fruity and vibrant, making it a perfect match for a wide variety of food pairings.
Armenian wine Koor from Highland Cellars has absorbed the centuries-old traditions of wine-producing Armenia and its creators’ love for this land, where, according to Bible, Noah planted the first vine at the foothills of Mount Ararat. The successful launch of Koor wine production has become possible due to several factors: the great desire of its founders - the natives of Armenia and their friends, to preserve the local winemaking traditions as well as to contribute to the revival of wine-drinking culture of one of the oldest wine regions in the world; involvement of high-class experts to the production, each of whom was responsible for a particular stage of wine production, starting from the selection of grapes and the area of its growth to the manufacturing techniques and wine labels design.
Cooperation with Semina Consulting, a company engaged in the modernization of wine sector in Armenia and providing support for marketing management, has also made a significant contribution to the project. Koor entered the Armenian wine market in 2015. Made exclusively from the Armenian grape varieties, as a tribute to the Armenian heritage, Koor embodies both the centuries-old secrets and the latest technologies of winemaking. Today, the market of wines has been actively expanding in the world, following the steadily growing demand for wine – a glass of high quality wine for a good dinner or lunch seems to be nowadays as desirable as never.
Despite the fact that the long-standing leaders of the wine production, such as Italy and France, keep enjoying their positions on the international market, we believe that Armenian wine has a promising future and will find its market niche. In this aspect Koor wine, produced from indigenous Armenian grapes, can make a worthy contribution to the recognition of Armenia as an ancient wine-making country.
