Crete may be a very hot climate, but the Lyrarakis vineyards are nestled high up in the mountains where the climate is much fresher. Nevertheless, their red wines are big and bold; a dark red wine with good ageing potential. The Syrah lends plush berry fruit and soft tannins to the blend, tempered by Kotsifali’s fresh fruit profile. The palate is smooth and big, the finish is long and persistent.
