Microvinification is a fascinating project which started in 2018 by the Kyriakides' family, in order to explore further the character and full potential of Cyprus' native grape varieties - and believe you me, they've done that for sure. Every year, they try new takes on indigenous varieties and bottle their best experiments, summing up to 33 different wines from day one 'til today. The Fifth edition of microvinifications marks the last one.
Symbiosis showcases the Vasilissa variety (also known as Aspri fraoula) sourced from the Ayios Elias vineyard at 1100 meters elevation that has been spontaneously fermented under brief skin contact and matured on the lees for 12 months. Resulting in a totally different expression of the variety, full of complexity and excitement, the wine showcases floral aromas but with intense saltiness and texture.
