Kotsifali 2018, Lyrarakis, Crete
Bright, mid ruby colour. Aromas of both fresh and mature red cherries and zesty dark fruits with a touch of spice. Juicy and balanced in the mouth with fruity tannins and a refreshing and slightly piquant aftertaste.
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.
Hand-harvested. Exact harvest time defined by berry sensory assessment to obtain the optimum taste and aromatic balance. Fermentatin with maceration on the skins for 7 days to extract the poluphenols with ‘pigeage’. Temprature controlled fermentation between 25c and 28c.
