The white dry wine “Pente Litharia” of “Oenou Yi – Ktima Vassiliades” derives its name from the homonymous area in Omodos where its particular microclimate contributes to the unique maturation of the Xinisteri variety grapes.

The character of “Pente Litharia” is attributable to the careful grape selection in the vineyards, the overnight cryomaceration, the wild and controlled fermentation and the battonage that was applied to give this wine its complex and full flavors.

It is characterized by a bright, light golden-yellow colour with shades of green and is complemented by the elegant fragrance of exotic fruits and citrus, coupled with the calming aroma and flavour of white flowers.

Maintaining a delicate balance between its dynamic body and velvety texture, it has a lingering and expressive aftertaste. As a prominent native variety, it fittingly reveals, preserves and accentuates its authentic Cypriot identity.

“Pente Litharia” combines well with a fresh seafood meze and the well known Cypriot haloumi cheese however it is equally as appealing without any food accompaniment.

Ιt is recommended to be served at temperatures of 8-10ºC, within two year.
