Kyperounda



The Kyperounda Winery brought together the local vine-growers of Kyperounda village, one of the biggest and most dynamic companies in Cyprus (Photos Photiades) and a most capable and talented young oenologist, Mr Minas Mina.

 

The winery’s first wines were bottled in 2003 and their appearance on the local wine market gave a shake-up to the still waters of complacency in matters of wine. The six labels of this new and modern winery, two for white, a rosι and three for red wines, are the best that the Cyprus wine market has to exhibit at this moment, and are currently at the top of Cyprus’s wines for they include a very good Chardonnay (the best on the island), an exceptional wine from the indigenous Xynisteri grape (Petritis), and a Cabernet Sauvignon of a density, structure and balance that effortlessly place it at the top of Cyprus reds. Andessitis has managed to catch up, in quality, with the other wines of the winery, for the last two vintages that I have tasted show obvious improvement. In the last few years the producer has expanded his range of wines with two new labels, the Kyperounda Rosι and the Kyperounda Shiraz. Any time now the winery's Commandaria will be released, thus completing the range with the so far non-existent sweet wine. I am more than convinced that the Kyperounda investment (in my view the most interesting and most promising over the last decade) will in the near future constitute one of the basic quality pylons on which to carve the new upgraded image of Cyprus wine.

 

 

 

Best Wine


Petritis

 

This is the top Xynisteri wine in Cyprus. In terms of colour, it is the darkest; in terms of aroma, it is the richest and most compact, dominated by pineapple, peach and butter aromas with vanilla undertones, as part of the wine was allowed to mature for a few months in oak barrels. For a Xynisteri wine, it has an exceptionally rich mouth, almost fatty, but at the same time absolutely balanced and with intense and persistent flavour. It is the most interesting dry wine that Cyprus has to offer at the moment.

Recommended Wines


Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

 

This virile, dark red wine has intense characteristics: a rich, concentrated nose, combining farm, leather, tobacco, tar and coffee aromas with vanilla and oak. The mouth too is full and compact. It can hold its own on the international market. (I tasted the 2008 vintage from the barrel and I found it to be even more concentrated than the 2007 vintage).

Chardonnay

 

This wine has been the best Chardonnay on the island over the past five years. It has style and is clearly reminiscent of the New World. Rich nose with barrel fermentation aromas – jasmine, wax, butter, roasted nuts and yellow fruits. Over- abundant and fatty in the mouth, with good fruit, well-placed oak and balanced acidity.

Andessitis

 

This is the best low priced red wine produced on the island. It features good colour intensity, and has a strong compact nose of spices and red fruit aromas along with vanilla and oak undertones. It has a fuller body than other wines in its category and at the same time it is softer as well, though its acidity is rather on the high side.
