New year, a new vintage – not so quick with Commandaria Wine.
Unlike any other wine in Cyprus, time can sit still when the time comes to tasting or enjoying Commandaria.
A recent tasting with Vasos, sommelier at Risto La Piazza presented us with 3 vintages, 20 – 9 – and 4 years of ageing in oak barrels respectively. What to say? And should we spoil the moment by revealing what it is exactly that this sweet fortified wines have as a magical.
Let’s just say, recuperating an expression shared with us recently, Commandaria such a wine that has stories to tell – indeed, I felt is was more like storytelling in the form of sweet wine whispers.
