Aromas of stone fruit with delicate notes of ginger. Marvelously rich grapes have given this wine a generous mouthfeel balanced by a backbone of lean minerality.

More information:

The Lyrarakis Estate is a family winery which has been producing high quality wines since 1966 with a strong focus on rare local varieties and producing single variety wines.

The family is credited with the revival of two ancient Cretan varieties, Dafni and Plyto while a third “vineyard treasure”, the indigenous Melissaki, is recently added to the credits.

Surrounded by the idyllic setting of the vineyards and the Lassithi mountains, the family discovered the quality potential of East Crete in the 70's. Originally on the “Vóila” plain and subsequently in the extended surroundings, these exceptional vineyards are where the grape variety Assyrtiko thrives.

"From a small family winery who discovered the potential of east Crete in the 1970s. Sourced form an unirrigated single vineyard, this Assyrtiko is lovely and fresh, with crisp apple, stone fruit and hint of ginger. The textured palate has a rich mouthfeel supported by minerality and a natural acidity that leads into a long, fruity and uplifting finish." 91 points, Decanter Magazine
