From Crete's wonderful family-owned Lyrarakis winery, comes this beautiful orange wine.
Lyrarakis have worked tirelessly to rescue Crete's lost vinous gems.
The Melissaki variety, unknown and forgotten by many, can be found in vineyards at the foothills of Mount Psiloritis. Lyrarakis planted it in 2010 in a family-owned vineyard, called “GERODETI”, hence the wine name.
Intense herbal aromas such as lemon balm surrounded by notes of white fleshed fruit. Elegant on the palate, the wine combines a crispy mouth with a remarkably dense texture.
The wine is incredibly versatile, naturally pairing with all manner of Greek Meze, but also superb with crispy roast pork, and bold enough to partner spicy Asian foods.
