Very similar to a tawny Port. Decent price point. I would do again.

Beautiful dessert wine; sweet without being syrupy. Raisin, dried fruit and toasty almonds. Really lovely.

Xinisteri and Mavro blend from the Lemesos region of Cypress. Clear pale copper, dried stone fruits, dried fig and prune caramelized. M acidity, M+ body and finish. Not overly sweet- perhaps an after dinner sipper!

Amazing sherry – paired with a sharp shaved cow's milk cheese, honey and toasted walnuts.
