Created from the indigenous variety Xinisteri, Pente Lithária is an emblematic white wine of Oenou Yi-Ktima Vassiliades. Its name derives from the homonymous viticultural area of Omodos, Pente Litharia, the place where it was born. The fruit of the variety were carefully collected from the estate’s exemplary vineyard –the largest privately owned vineyard in Cyprus– at an altitude of 1100 metres. Cultivation care, small yields, unique microclimate and modernised winemaking in the winery’s special facilities, resulted in a unique wine.
Pente Lithária is pale yellow with green highlights, a bright and clear colour. Elegant aromas of exotic fruit and citrus with soft notes of white flowers emerge on the nose. Its palate is balanced and unctuous, resulting in a memorable aftertaste.
