(2016) What a treat to find this wine in the UK thanks to Daily Drinker: I've judged the Cyprus National Wine Awards three times now, most recently in 2016, and have visited these phenomenal vineyards at 1500 metres altitude which they claim to be Europe's highest. I have also tasted a vertical of this wine
back to the 2002, proving it ages well. It's a serious, Chablis-style wine made from the native Xinisteri and gently touched by oak. Shimmering and bright, there is vanilla and oatmeal over ultra-fresh citrus and apple, a little salty mineral note too. All of that combines on the palate rather beautifully: its not flashy or outgoing, but has a winning balance of fruit and nervous energy, and a long, mineral finish.
