WineGraphing Cyprus wines in Moscow
Although some might see a repeat of last year’s event, nothing far from it. The Daily WineGraph (a.k.a Denis Roundenko) will add a new twist to his Cyprus Wine tasting in Moscow later on this month when he brings head to head Cyprus wine variety Xynisteri against Shiraz. Winemaking from Cyprus could be more exciting for Russian palates.

As the 7th Cyprus Wine competition judging was coming to end, Minas Mina, Winemaker at Kyperounda was preparing a vertical Xynisteri flight of such heights, unlike anything which a competition could ever evaluate. Xynisteri Vintages, 2008, 2010 and 2011 - the key to understanding the future positioning of Petritis Wine range - a must for the future understanding quality in relation to this unique variety from the Kyperounda Wine region.
High Altitude Xynisteri and Maratheftiko wines are common at Vouni Panayia but making it out to the winery gives you a unique angle of Cyprus Wine
Unveiling some of the Xynisteri 2011, a wine tasting announcing another great vintage.
The trio of wines unveiled recently at Risto La Piazza, with Vasos Manolis, brought some reassurance of the great work that winemakers have done over the winter in overcoming the shortcomings of the Xynisteri harvest conditions this past year. An over all very satisfying feeling how these wines are being embraced locally too.

Larnaca sets the scene for Wine explorations overlooking the sea and fisherman’s marina.
The natural light couldn’t be most adequate for discovering the 2011 Vasilikon vintage, the peach and apricot aromas that can sooth any morning.
Although a little bit early for wine tastings, a wait worth it’s while until lunch.
