Tasting Notes

Bright platinum colour. Aromas of citrus and white fleshed stone fruit with herbal and chalky notes. The mouthfeel is rich and crispy with a salty freshness and slightly mineral aftertaste.

The Producer

The Lyrarakis estate is a family vineyard and winery which has been producing high quality wines since 1966.

Lyrarakis has devoted itself to the revival of indigenous, almost extinct, rare varieties such as Dafni, Plyto, Melissaki and others, vinifying wines that highlight their unique and distinctive character.

Vinification

The harvest was performed by hand seeking to obtain a proper fruit maturity. Skin contact was carried out at 12c for 10 hours. Fermented in a stainless steel tank, this wine had a slow fermentation rate that lasted for 15 days.
