Beskrivelse

Commandaria St John er en historiske sød ørken vin. De høstede druer bliver spredt ud i solen for at tørre, indtil deres sukker densitet når 19-23 Baume. Når druerne har opnået den rette densitet, knuses de, og sættes til gæring, indtil processen standser helt naturligt på grund af det høje sukkerindhold.

Saften bliver derefter lagret på egetræsfade i mindst to år. I stil med solera systemet, bliver tønderne aldrig helt tømt. Ny saft tilsættes til cylinderen der indeholder gamle saft og processen startes forfra.

St. John Commandaria er en sød vin med en kraftig bouquet fyldt med tørrede frugter, krydderier og egetræ. Den er sødlig og fyldig (full-bodied).

Producentens noter (på engelsk)

Commandaria is a unique wine produced from some of the oldest grape varieties in the world. It was named Commandaria by the knights of St. John who made it famous throughout the kingdoms of Europe during the Crusades.

St. John is vinified from Cyprus ancient and indigenous grape varieties Mavro and Xynisteri coming from the denominated area of Commandaria on the eastern slopes of Troodos mountains making it an “Appellation of origin” wine. Only these fourteen villages have the privilege to produce this unique wine.

The grapes grow in volcanic soils, poor and thin, thus producing a low yield but of high quality. After the overripe grapes are harvested, they are left to dry in the sun until the water evaporates and the sugar is concentrated inside the berries.

The grapes are then pressed and the resultant syrup like juice is left to ferment naturally in traditional wooden vats. The wine then ages in old oak barrels in KEO’s isothermic cellars. KEO’s St. John Commandaria is a blend of different year vintages based on the Solera system whereby young wine is always being blended with old wine to ensure a consistent style year after year.

This luscious amber wine has a powerful bouquet, aroma of dried fruit, spices and oak wood. Ideal as an aperitif, an after dinner drink, or as a base for refreshing long drinks.
Commandaria St. John is available in 75cl and 35cl bottles. KEO Commandaria is also available in a Luxury 1984 Vintage Edition in 75cl bottle.

    Det bringer nogle minder frem om hede Cypriotiske nætter i godt selskab, og masser af fest, og KEO ikke mindst 🙂
