Tsiakkas



The most romantic story in wine matters is being written at the village of Pelendri where the Tsiakkas winery is situated; romantic, because how else could one describe Costas Tsiakkas who, in full awareness and at the age of 43, gave up a successful career in banking as a branch manager with an enviable income and bright prospects, to devote himself wholeheartedly to his winery? How else could one describe a young family man with four minors who abandons not only a very decent job but also his home in Lemesos, to set up a new home, for all his family, in a distant little village in the poor region of Pitsilia, away from schools and other educational facilities, at the same time taking his children away from their friends? I like people like Costas Tsiakkas because he is a negator, he is a real sport, who put his love for wine above the social conventions of modern times, according to which businessmen and civil servants are considered successful people whereas those who live in the country are thought of as marginalized peasants. In brief, Costas Tsiakkas, a former banker, has been gnawed and corroded by the "woodworm" that bears the name of "wine"!

 

The winery, which is managed by Costas and his wife Marina, is one of the loveliest in Cyprus, for it is situated in a wooded area in mountainous Pitsilia. The building is faced with solid local stone impregnated with the noble dreams of two bread-winners, with priority given to the vision of setting up a tall stone tower which will constitute the permanent trademark of the winery.

 

 

 

Best Wine


Rodinos

 

The winery's rosι will attract you with its very beautiful rose colour. It is aromatically lively, fresh and fruity; the main nose constituents are wild strawberry, cherry, rose and certain faint touches of caramel and herbs. A refreshing, vigourous, fruitily disposed mouth with nice acidity, and a light tannic feel at the finish.

Tsiakkas white

 

Costas Tsiakkas's Xynisteri has Improved considerably over the last two years: The wine is obviously fruitier both in the nose and in the mouth; the mouth is also richer and better balanced – thanks to the wine's lively acidity – and also has a longer and more intense aftertaste.

Chardonnay

 

This is one of the very few unoaked Chardonnays produced on the island. Fresh and fruity in the glass, expressing the genuine aspects of the variety, with pleasant, pure aromas of peach and pineapple; the same lively aromas are present in the mouth too, where the wine remains fruity, refreshing and balanced.

Cabernet Sauvignon

 

I tasted three vintages of this wine. The 2005 is complex and refined. It has good body, discernible tannins and rather highlighted acidity. The following vintage (2006) is somewhat less mature and less complex compared to the 2005. The 2007, however, does stand out as the wine is definitely fruitier aromatically and rounder in taste.
