LYRARAKIS White Wine Malvasia of Crete



Naturally sweet wine from sun-dried grapes 

Malvasia of Crete is an exceptional quality sweet wine, which dominated for over 3 centuries the markets of the East and West during the Venetian rule of the Mediterranean (13th to 17th century). The Lyrarakis family, trying to revive the tradition, has vinificated a wine which is believed to be very close to the authentic Malvasia using native varieties of Crete. The family's belief is that the original Malvasia was a sweet wine resulting from a multi-varietal blend rather than a single variety. 
Vineyard: Private vineyard in Crete Alagni
Vinification: The grapes of Plyto, Dafni, Vidiano Vilana and lay in the sun for 9 days for partial drying. The thick juice yields a naturally sweet wine with excellent concentration of aromas and flavors, which is aged for a year in new oak barrels.
Characteristics: Gold deep color and intense aromas of ripe fruits like apricot and peach with hints of honey and a slight smoky sensation from the barrels.
Suggested with: Creamy desserts and fruits
Best reserved: At a temperature of 10°C.
Ageing: Over the next 3 years
Available in 750ml
