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. Kyperounda Winery has been producing wine since
2003 and has already made quite a splash on the international stage.
Vineyard
The Xynisteri variety, pronounced (Sin-ees-ter-ee), is a native grape to the island. These
indigenous grapes are grown on the southern slopes of the Troodos Mountains, in some
of the highest vineyards in Europe. 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 flavours in the fruit, while preserving refreshing
acidity.
Winemaking
The gravity-fed winery is built on three levels and is designed for the gentlest possible
handling of the grapes and wine. The grapes underwent 10 to 12 hours skin contact
pre-fermentation maceration, depending on the temperature of the grapes. Vinification
took place in stainless steel tanks to maximise the purity of the fruit. The wine did not go
through malolactic conversion in order to retain freshness and enhance the mineral
character. 20% of the wine was then matured in new oak for two months, adding
subtle oak complexity to the final blend.
