Vouni Panayia

Spourtiko Unfiltered - 2022


AromaticWeekday bangershidden gemfunky level 2

Sixteen indigenous varieties have been recorded so far in Cyprus' vineyards and who knows what else this undiscovered terroir with the uniqueness of the ungrafted vines can hide.

Vouni Panayia is the only Cypriot winery that exclusively cultivates native Cypriot varieties. And if someone asks what to distinguish between them, the answer will be rather difficult. It's not just their rarity, but the fact that each of them can be completely unique. Spourtiko for example, with its thin fragile skin (Spourto means breaks up/ explode in Cypriot) is almost always the variety that gives those wines with the lowest alcohol of all, while citrus, pear and herbal notes complement the mineral notes of limestone that characterize it.
