My wife only drinks sweet wines!! Red wine in the evening for the benefit. (I know Commandario, Muscat sweet, Nama). Can you name wines that can be bought in the shops??
Commandaria: Natural Sweet Wine made from Grapes Dehydrated under the Sun The sweet treasure of Cyprus. The King of Wines and Wine for Kings. The world’s oldest Appellation (Designated name of Origin) Wine, is still in production. I can talk about Commandaria for days. What you need to know is that the name comes from the word Commandarie. Because the grapes are only picked from the administrative region i.e. the headquarters, of the order of the knights Hospice, called ‘Le Gran Commandarie de Chypre’. The production of this wine is strictly regulated. If it carries the name of Commandaria DOP it’s good enough. The profile of the wine varies for each producer and depends on a number of factors. You need to try a few and find which is your preferred style.
Buying tip: Please when you purchase Commandaria avoid fancy bottles and packaging and better stay away from the low price range. Here is a list of Commandaria wines that I can deliver to you if you want.
