Lyrarakis Assyrtiko Voila
Lyrarakis Estate
Greece - Crete

The Lyrarakis family learned the quality potential of East Crete during the 1970's. Originally on the "Voila" plain and subsequently in the extended surroundings, they discovered exceptional vineyards where the great grape variety Assyrtiko thrives.

Bright platinum color. Pure floral aromas with ginger spices and delicate notes of ripe citrus. Marvelously ripe grapes have given this wine a crispy and rich mouthfeel with a mineral and chalky character.
