A glass of good conversation please - #recommandaria

A glass of good conversation please - #recommandaria | Wine Cyprus | Scoop.it

We live too fast. We need inspiration, time, quality of life, with what it implies, and of course, these wines, are not to take them on its own or by oneself, you can! do not misunderstand me! I'm proof of that! But really the best way, and if I write an article about it I would recommand(aría) it, it is that they are wines to take them after dinner, in good company where the protagonist is the good conversation.

Commandaria Wine - the best conversation in time.

Melapsopodi as difficult as it is to pronounce for a Cyprus Wine- you'll be pleasantly surprised by this wine - so were the judges as it got Gold in last year's 6th edition of Cyprus Annual Wine Award - so an excellent option of Cabernet Sauvignon Blanc from Tsalapatis Winery and the french roots of it's leading Oenologist in Polemi, Cyprus

When people think of Cyprus, they don’t typically think of great wine? | Wine Cyprus | Scoop.it

Head barman here at Anassa, takes great pride in educating our guests about the wonderful variety of wines we have to offer in Cyprus.  It's a fact that Commandaria fortified wine has been genuinely scoring well at competitions around the world. Today multiple wineries are emulating this success in other still wines.

 

Antoniou Takis has been in Cyprus working for 13 years and has seen plenty of guests embark on visits to local vineyards to buy cases of wine following their tastings at the hotel - Thank you Antoniou for the consistent support.

In the kitchen, over the dining room, he is the embodiment of service and oversight....can't wait to see the wine list.

Mother Vine Vindicated

Mother Vine Vindicated | Wine Cyprus | Scoop.it

The stakes are very high. The loss of grape biodiversity and the increasing marginalization of family farming tragically receives a helping hand by dogged international naïveté and indifference, both governmental and from within a wide segment of the wine profession itself, an attitude which holds, by default, that no more than 10 grape varieties need exist in the entire world. Indeed, without – perhaps equally naive – push-back, an insistence on diversity and difference, Portugal might yet come to suffer in the not-too-distant future a homogenized viticulture, sacrificing an august patrimony on the altar of Cabernet, Chardonnay and mass production.

Visiting through the island’s major wine producing region of Cyprus takes you to Lemona where Tsangarides Winery has been cultivating vines for generations and winning prizes for its fine wines.

Can there we be a better way to pass an hour in winter sunshine than by sampling the organic crisp whites, fruity roses and round reds with slivers of salty cheese?

What's great about The Rock's Rosés

What's great about The Rock's Rosés | Wine Cyprus | Scoop.it

The Rock's rosés is that wineries are crafting them with many different varieties, creating a wide array of distinct aromas, flavor profiles and vibrant hues. Meant to be drank young, these playful wines explode upon being uncorked with the scent of raspberries, cherries, cranberries, strawberries, pomegranate, red roses, violets and/or wild herbs, among others.

Monastic wine moving beyond traditions - Chrysorroyiatissa

Monastic wine moving beyond traditions - Chrysorroyiatissa | Wine Cyprus | Scoop.it

If you are into peregrinations or into religious artifacts, at the Monastery you'll also be blessed with finding 2009 Monastiri, a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz blend. The monastery is probably best known for its two table wines produced by Abbot Dionysios; Ayios Andronicos, a white wine made of Xynisteri and meant to be consumed young, and Ayios Elias.

 

2009 Chrysorroyiatissa Monastiri (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz)

 

Note by Mateo - @whineontherocks -  Satisfying aroma marked by blackberries, plum, black pepper, cloves and a light hint of vanilla and chocolate. To the palate, harsh tannins and a noticeable spike in the alcohol that smoothed out once the wine was matched with food and had enough time to breathe. Black fruit predominates in a blend that lacked some flavor in the mid-palate, a miss in the finish.

A full bodied Sweet Wine - Keo St. John Commandaria

A full bodied Sweet Wine - Keo St. John Commandaria | Wine Cyprus | Scoop.it
Nice, full bodied sweet wine. Perfect for after dinner with desert or alone. Pleasing, rich aroma, similar to a nice sherry or port. Velvety smooth with notes of dried fruit clove and allspice. Probably would make a good mulled wine or wine/cider mix if you were so inclined
