Nelion



The name of this small winery at the village of Pretori is an abbreviated combination of the owners’ names, Neophytos and Eleni Ioannou. Neophytos is an authentic specimen of a straightforward, unaffected villager, unbelievably hardworking and cultured, who, for years, has been striving hard to make a living from the Cypriot countryside which has long been forgotten and abandoned by the spineless state. He talks about his devotion and love for his village, he opens his heart to you and his innermost soul reveals his passion for wine and his vision for a modern viable winery, at the helm of which, in a few years, will be his son who is studying Oenology abroad. At the same time, he cannot hide the disappointment of a vine-grower who, abandoned both by the state and by his fellow men, alone against the forces of nature and the lack of opportunities and means, and in the face of relentless and intensifying international competition in the wine market, is striving to stand his ground for a better future, away from the din and hubbub of the city with wretched tenements full of thousands of tenants deprived of the means of making a decent living.

 

The winery at Pretori is small but it is a neat, attractive and wellintegrated building facing and almost touching the road, with a tidy cellar, teeming with thousands of bottles beautifully laid out, in addition to a number of 300-litre oak barrels. The range of its wines does not reflect the winery’s small size, for it displays no fewer than ten different labels – which perhaps is too many and splits up the winemaker’s attention to quality.

 

 

 

Best Wine


Black Muscat

 

This is the only wine of its kind produced on the island. Its colour is somewhere between rosι and light red, and its nose is reminiscent of roses, lychees and jellified quince pulp with hints of caramel. Pleasantly sweet, aromatic and tasty mouth with discernible tannins in its aftertaste. Must be served cool, at a temperature of between 10° and 12°C.

Recommended Wines


Shiraz

 

The winery's Shiraz has always been fruitier and more aromatically pleasing, with a “sweeter”, friendlier and more balanced taste than the Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2006 vintage gave a wine of attractive red fruit, grass and pepper aromas, with adequately concentrated and wellbalanced taste. The 2007 wine was simpler, with satisfactory but lesser body than that of the previous year.

Nelion red dry

 

A table wine produced from the Cabernet Franc, Grenache and Cinsaut varieties. When young (about 12 months), it features medium intensity colour, a pleasant nose of satisfactory fruit, and a light taste with intense and somewhat dry tannins. A simple wine for short term consumption.
