Lyrarakis White
Lyrarakis Estate
Greece - Crete

An aromatic white wine with an exciting, crispy mouthfeel, vinified by combining indigenous and international grape varieties perfectly acclimatized to the island.

Bright and lively pale yellow color. Mature aromas of grapefruit and stone fruit enhanced by a persistent presence of rose petals. Elegant and finely balanced with pleasant acidity and plushy finish.
