Producer Note
This producer has not only the highest winery in Europe situated at 1,140 metres, but
also the highest vineyards at over 1,400 metres above sea level. Located at
Kyperounda, in the Pitsilia area of the Troodos mountain range, the Kyperounda
Winery sits in an idyllic setting, with correspondingly spectacular views. The winery
was designed to the specifications of experienced winemakers and uses gravity to
produce wine in the gentlest possible way. They have been producing wine since
2003 and already made quite a splash on the international stage.
Vintage
2016 was the earliest vintage of the last ten years with the harvest starting on the 1st
of October, but the vines still had plenty of time for the grapes to ripen and reach
optimum maturity. The grapes had a higher phenolic level, resulting in wines with
more structure.
Vineyard
The Xynisteri variety is as delicious as it is difficult to pronounce (Sin-ees-ter-ee). The
indigenous grapes are grown on the southern slopes of the Troodos Mountains, in
some of the highest vineyards in Europe, at altitudes of 1,400 metres above sea level.
The plots sit on rocky terraces, where the soils are made up of sandy clay. Due to the
altitude of the vineyards, Kyperounda invariably harvests approximately one month
later than vineyards at half their elevation and the long hang time results in
concentrated fruit.
Winemaking
The gravity fed winery is built on three levels and is designed for the gentlest possible
handling of the grapes and wine. The vinification took place in stainless steel tanks to
maximise the purity of the fruit. 20% of the wine was then matured in one year old
barriques for two months, adding subtle oak complexity to the final blend.
Tasting Note
Delicious aromas of citrus fruits, candied lime, lychee and a touch of spice and
vanilla. A medium bodied yet refreshing wine with a long, persistent finish.
Serving Suggestion
A great partner to linguine with lemon and black pepper, salt and pepper squid or
delicately spiced Asian cuisine.
