\nThe oldest appellation wine in the World. \n \nBrownish gold in colour, as a great Commandaria should be. \nA fine aroma on the nose, where you can find predominant chocolate and coffee aromas, followed by fresh mint that follows in the mouth. \n \nThe first impression is finesse, with a subtle round taste, that leaves an impression of mushroom in the centre of the mouth, and a luscious chocolate, heavier on the coffee, with a note of freshness flowing, that carries the taste through. \n


\nSoil Type: Volcanic Soil \nAge Of Vines: 15 – 25 Years Old \nTrellising: Horizontal Cuplike \nVine Density: 3000/ ha \nIrrigation: No \n


\nWood ageing: Minimum two years in Oak Barrels \nTotal production: 4500 Cases of 6 bottles \n


\nSaint Barnabas Commandaria is only given to the market when it is ready for consumption, but Commandaria keeps getting better and better with time. \nThe Aeiging Potential is limitless. \n


\nXynisteri 94%, Mavro 6% \n


\nCommandaria is the absolute dessert wine. \nIt will compliment any dessert, but mostly chocolate, creamy desserts, fruit and nuts. \nTry it with blue cheese and grapes. \n
