Why do we love it?

"Psarades" (means fishermen in Greek) climbed to 480 meters and they are doing miracles! Yes, as you may have realized, we are talking about Psarades Dafni of Lyrarakis Winery.

The Cretan variety was rescued by Lyrarakis family back in the 90s. The variety took its name from the laurel aromas it bears. Botanical character, refreshing acidity and good aging potential make Dafni a very special variety and we are very happy that it still exists. The emblematic Lyrarakis winery is dedicated to the local treasures of the island and recently make wines based on single varieties from single vineyard sites. So, Dafni comes from the vineyard site "Psarades".

If you keep it 2-3 years, it will unfold its botanical temperament even more.

Every sip is an autumn walk in prairies with Chios tangerines, these yellowish ones that pierce your nose with their aromas. Around those there are some laurels and blossomed lemon trees that are intoxicating.
