My wife and I went to Cyprus last week. My mum's family is from there and it had been a decade since I had last visited. I was excited to try this wine because. Richard II called it the "wine of kings and king of wines", and it is so named after crusaders. Apparently the wine making process has scarcely changed in a thousand years and the grapes are still sourced from the same mountainous slopes of Troodos. This bottling is $20 or so and widely available. And it is so delicious. Walnut and spice with a rich, persistent midpalate and long evolution through the finish. It tastes like a Vin Santo but less sweet or a very decent young Madeira. In recent years higher end, vintage versions have been released. I'm eager to try them.
