Wine Tasting: Petritis 2014, Kyperounda Winery

Light-bodied white from Cyprus, made at one of the highest vineyards in Europe, up to 1400 metres above sea level. It is made with the indigenous grape Xynisteri, in the Troodos mountain range. High in minerality, this wine has a long finish and a great complexity: in the mouth offers hints of peach, acacia flower, citrus and orange peel. The high altitude gives rise to high acidicity and a touch of oak aging provides some spicy notes, like white pepper.

Suggested pairings: seafood pasta, octus, salmon crostini. Great aperitif wine!

Location: Londra, Regno Unito
