We’ve had some warm and sunny days here lately and finally been able to enjoy summer. With the warm weather we reach for some delight in our cellar and lately we’ve been loving everything that has come from Greece to our shores. This week's wine is another great buy, fine dry white wine that is very reasonably priced!
This time we’re off to the Island of Crete for our wine of the week. 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.
From the Voila area on the eastern part of the island we fin this fine wine made from 100 % Assyrtiko grapes. Harvest is performed by hand to obtain proper fruit maturity. Skin contact is carried out at 10°C for an average of 24 hours, while 7% of the grapes are fermented with maceration on skins.

Bright platinum colour. Aromas of citrus and white fruit with herbal and chalky notes. The mouthfeel is rich and crispy with a salty freshness and a mineral aftertaste.
Will work well with grilled pork and also most sea food.
