“Pretty, elegant, lifted cherry nose; pomegranate. Very well balanced structurally with tasty fruit character leading to a satisfying, elegantly lifted finish. Medium+ finish. Very nice wine, very attractive, should have wide appeal. What’s not to love? Very good value.”

“Full-bodied but not heavy, generous until alcohol intervenes: too hot, also abbreviates finish. Good quality fruit: pure red fruits with hints of sweet spices and light/medium sweet tannins. Medium- finish. Does it need a little time? Oak very well integrated already Two different bottles had different alcohol statements: 14%/15%. Whichever the number, it’s sadly still unbalanced and intrusive.”

“Bright, fresh nose, initially quite complex, with more mineral/edgy/cranberry/pomegranate; torrefaction than others; the longer it breathed, the more the earthy/torrefaction character talked over the fruit. Quite fine.”

From a different parcel of vines than the “classic” bottling.  Harvested around the 10th of November, with a more rigorous sorting.  Fermented in stainless vats, but malolactic and elevage in (mostly used, 350-400 liter) oak barrels for about a year. Deep crimson and spicy, with the toasty oak character initially prominent on the nose, but plush, structured and elegant in the mouth with a supple, delicate tannic frame.  A lovely wine: layers of black pepper, vanilla, red berries, black licorice and holiday spices lead into a crisp finish.”

Pale crimson. Pretty delicate raspberry nose with light mineral note. Light bodied, filigreed, full-palate coverage – really. Impressive. Very feminine; poised. Fully integrated, refined. Delicate 3D finish. Really great right now and for the next three years. Great value.”

Bright yellow.  Bright and focused on attack, it opens out to become broad and rich, not quite full-bodied, with aromas and flavors of citrus, pears and tropical fruits.”

“Full, rich, yeasty and very creamy, yet with green apple and tropical notes on the nose and palate. Juice from the oldest vines are used in this cuvée, imparting considerably more depth and breadth than the NV, and a finish that is crisp, and vaguely saline. Long and very satisfying. From the same village as the NV, the grapes grow on volcanic and limestone soils.”

“This is a nice red from Armenia, with a soft mouthfeel and nice balance. Easy drinking and fruit forward, with a touch of earth notes. Spicy and interesting. Rich and elegant.”

“Say hello to my first Armenian wine! This is a delicious sparkling wine from Armenia. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Dry on the palate with citrus, lemons, green apples, herbs, yeast, light spices, river rocks, earth and white pepper.”

“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.”

Caroline Gilby writes in her article “The rebirth of Armenian wine, and bottles to try” that “Few corners of the world can rival Armenia’s rich winemaking history and a new, exciting generation of wines have emerged in the post-Soviet era.”

Armenia—the oldest wine drinking culture—also has an exciting small modern wine industry. Keush is a terrific example. Fresh and minerally, the [sparkling] wine comes from high elevation volcanic and limestone soils. Plus it’s a great opportunity to taste two little-known grape varieties: voskehat and khatouni.
