Why do we love it?

Assyrtiko Voila from the Lyrarakis winery is a white wine with a full body and delicate acidity, which makes you wonder about its place of origin. This exact debate was also created in the taste palette of Janis Robinson and Tim Atkin, who in almost all the years of its release, give it excellent ratings.

The Lyrarakis winery is located in Heraklion, Crete, and is one of the oldest on the island. The Lyraraki family started working in the wine sector in 1966 and since then they have managed to save several local varieties such as Dafni, Melissaki, and Plyto. The iconic winery has shown immense mastery in highlighting the local treasures of the island and has given special value to the equation one vineyard, one variety equals one wine. Thus Voila comes from Assyrtiko that grows in a dry vineyard in the plain of the same name "Voila", at an altitude of 580 meters.

The grape is pressed and remains with the stems and at low temperatures for 16 hours to enhance the aromas. It then slowly ferments in stainless steel tanks for a full 15 days. After the fermentation is complete, it remains in contact with the lees to increase its volume. The above add up to a rich and at the same time very refreshing effect.

You can drink it now, but in 6 years it will be amazing!
