History

The Lyrarakis Estate is a family winery which has been producing high quality wines since 1966 with a strong focus on rare local varieties and producing single variety wines. The family is credited with the revival of two ancient Cretan varieties, Dafni and Plyto while a third “vineyard treasure”, the indigenous Melissaki, is recently added to the credits. Surrounded by the idyllic setting of the vineyards and the Lassithi mountains we offer you the opportunity to enjoy nature and discover local varieties and wines distinguished by the uniqueness of their origin and heritage.

Wine Moments

 Oz Clarke, Wine Writer (United Kingdom)  tasted  1 wines  from  Lyrarakis . In a tasting of  9 wines 

Lyrarakis Dafni 2015 / If you’re the type who wants to cuddle down to something reliable and predictable this Christmas – look away now. Because my budget white is a wild, wild wine with flavours stolen from swirling breezes among the rosemary bushes and pine trees scattered across the hills of Crete. Deep, soft, scented, and truly dry in the modern Greek tradition – if this won’t bring back midsummer memories in the depths of winter – nothing will. And anyway – who could resist a wine called Daphne?

 Julia Harding MW, Wine Writer (United Kingdom)  tasted  2 wines  from  Lyrarakis . In a tasting of  19 wines 

Miraval's top wine Muse de Miraval Rosé 2020, made from selected best and oldest organic vineyards – Grenache and Rolle. Bottled in magnum only. Vinified in egg-shaped concrete tanks, a very small proportion aged in demi-muids.
Pretty salmon pink. Complex aroma of pretty peachy red fruits along with the merest hint of creamy oak influence. Rounded, very creamy in the mouth. Tastes surprisingly soft, almost flabby. Gentle tannins. Quite long but for me it lacks a backbone of freshness. Have I missed something? Packaging very ornate. (JH)
