The historical sweet desert wine. Harvested grapes are spread out in the sun to dry until their sugar density reaches 19-23 Baume. Once achieved, the grapes are crushed and fermented until the process stops naturally due to the high sugar content. The must is then aged in oak barrels for a minimum of two years. Similar to the solera system, the barrels are never completely emptied. New juice is added to the barrel containing old juice and the process begins again. St. John Commandaria is a sweet wine with a powerful bouquet filled with dried fruits, spices and oak. It is luscious and full-bodied.
