Lyrarakis Red Kotsifali Syrah

Lyrarakis Red Kotsifali Syrah

  • $32.00*

The 2018 Lyrarakis red blend from Crete, Greece is a delightful blend of two of the island’s most popular red grape varieties. With Syrah providing the structure and color and Kotsifali adding ripe fruit flavors, this is a wine full of character, with a spicy, earthy aroma and red berry flavors that linger on the palate. On the finish, hints of tobacco and leather add complexity, while balanced acidity and soft tannins create a well-rounded and enjoyable drinking experience.

About the winery. The Lyrarakis Estate was founded in 1966 by brothers Manolis and Sotiris Lyrarakis. It is surrounded by the Lassithi mountains and focuses on rare local varieties and single variety wines. The Lyrarakis family is credited with the revival of two ancient white Cretan varieties, Dafni and Plyto while a third “vineyard treasure”, the indigenous Melissaki, was also recently added to their credit. Indigenous reds such as Kotsifali and Mandilari are highlights at the estate, as well as Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, for which the great Symbolo is produced.
