Xynisteri: The Flagship White Wine of Cyprus
Moving on to white wines, we can’t miss the flagship grape variety of Cyprus: Xynisteri. This indigenous grape is grown exclusively in Cyprus and produces a crisp, refreshing white wine with citrus and floral notes. Xynisteri is often compared to Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, but it has a distinctive character that reflects the island’s sunny climate, rocky soil, and sea breeze. Try it with seafood, salads, or light pasta dishes.
