The 'Anama Single Barrel Vintages are produced just one barrel at a time during selected years and allowed significant additional aging time in the oak compared to the standard 'Anama Vintages.All 'Anama Vintages, that have so far been released, are non-fortified, naturally sweet wines, aged in selected oak barrels for as long as each individual vintage requires. They are subjected to the least possible oenological treatments, in order to preserve the characteristics of each year's crop as accurately as possible.
Ancestral drive,passion,creativity and perhaps"biological memory"have led the wine producer in presenting this wine which for the last ten centuries bears the name "commandaria"this wine was exacted by sun drying the two indigenus Cyprus varieties Mavro & Aspro Xinisteri. Complex aromas of caramel ,coffee and dried figs with notes of honey. Balanced acidity with a full body and a long aftertaste.Aged in barrel for two years.
95% Xynisteri, 5% Mavro, Single Vineyard Intense citrus aromas, sweet bergamot, mature apricot and dried figs accompanied with a nutty and toffee aftertaste. A well balanced wine with a harmony between fruitiness, acidity and sweetness.
In the southeastern range of the Troodos Mountain are fourteen “Commandaria” producing villages. Due to the ideal subsoil of their vineyards, native Cypriot varieties of Mavro and Xinisteri, sun-dried in the vast Cypriot sunlight, create the famous Commandaria of “Oenou Yi – Ktima Vassiliades”. This emblematic dessert wine is strictly produced in the traditional manner. It has a unique and envious ageing bouquet reminiscent of dried fruit, honey and spices. It therefore justifies not only its legendary path, but also the label of the oldest PDO in the world.
