Lyrarakis Liatiko Kedros Rose
Lyrarakis Estate
Greece - Crete

On the foothills of mt. Kedros, farmers have a tradition to keep a low bush vine format, in order to protect their fruit on shoots spreading over the soil, under a rich foliage. Protected from mt. Psiloritis’ winds, and the strong Cretan sunshine, on altitudes exceeding 800 meters, the Liatiko grape variety has been grown here for over a century. This rose is the rebirth of the grapes under a new face.  A wine with pale salmon color and a steely mouth, which is a  characteristic of the firmness of its origin. Fruity berry aromas are perfectly balanced with an astonishing sense of winter flowers. Beautifully balanced with a powerful liveliness in the mouthfeel, underlined by notes of minerality.
