Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a pretty interesting wine that you don't see very often. Port and Sherry fans, take note! It's made from Xynisteri and Mavro, which are white and red grapes respectively. The grapes are picked and dried, which concentrates the flavours.
Once fermented to roughly 15%, they yeast die off and the producer can choose to fortify it or not.
This example has an average amount of alcohol. They can go as high as a Port (20%). They also see a lot of barrel maturation.
This wine is beautifully coloured. Viscous and burnished brown and gold. Caramel and burned sugar. Lemon and raisin. Smokey and syrupy.
You can serve it chilled, but it isn't necessary. It's pretty delicious at any temperature. Serve it with pecans and tapasy stuff.
From the Mediterranean Island of Cyprus, Commandaria St. Nicholas 2013 is a rich dessert wine, amber in the glass with praline, dried fruit and sweet spice on the nose and palate. Commandaria is matured in oak for four years or more prior to its release. Lightly chill and pour with an apple and walnut strudel. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
