Lyrarakis Liastos - Sweet White Wine - Vidiano Plyto Dafni Assyrtiko Thrapsathiri Vilana
This sweet "Liastos" wine is a blend of local grapes which sun-dry (in the shadow), giving us a concentrated juice with density of aromas and taste. Caramelised apricots with a hint of herbs in the nose, followed by a bitter orange marmalade mouthfeel, which is balanced by the wine's exceptional freshness.
Clear golden colour. Intense deep bouquet of rip peach and apricot compined by delicious overtones of marmalade and honey flavours. Rich mouthfeel with bright citrus acidity and a long aromatic aftertaste. This wine has an excellent bottle-ageing potential that an overpass 10 years.
