KEO’s Commandaria St. John is produced from a rare ancient indigenous grape variety, Xynisteri, whose grapes come from a denominated area, on the eastern slopes of Troodos mountain range, giving the wine an "Appellation of origin” status. The grapes grow in volcanic soils, poor and thin, thus producing a low yield but of good quality crop. The grapes are left to overripe and after harvesting they are exposed directly to the sun, on rooftops, to increase their sugar content. Fermentation is slow, at low temperatures, and the wine then ages in oak barrels at KEO’s isotherm cellars.
Commandaria St. John offers a luscious taste of powerful bouquet, dried fruit, spices and oak wood. Commandaria is ideal as an aperitif, an after dinner drink, or as a refreshing long drink with soda and ice.
