Lyrarakis White

2019 Lyrarakis White - 89 PTS - WA

wa89"The 2019 White is mostly Muscat of Spina with 15% Vidiano, unoaked, dry and coming in at 12.5% alcohol. This has all those great Muscat aromatics (assuming you're an admirer and not a hater), a crisp and energetic edge and a delicious, juicy finish. At the price, it is a great value point in the lineup. It's a nervy wine with personality and refreshing characteristics. It's a perfect porch-sipper for warm weather. It has the structure to age a bit, but that's not really the point here. This is perhaps my personal favorite of the winery's whites this issue, but you do have to like that big Muscat personality. - Mark Squires"
