The Oddbins Take

Lyrarakis are true champions of indigenous Cretan grapes. The family is one of the top producers working with local varietal Kotsifali and are credited with the revival of two ancient Cretan varieties, Dafni and Plyto. They just brought them back from extinction and found a place for them in the modern wine world. Like Jurassic Park, if Richard Attenborough got the velociraptors jobs as grill chefs in one of Gordon Ramsey's kitchens.


This blend of Syrah & Kotsifali has a vibrant ruby red colour, a delicate balance highlighted by delicious blueberries, sweet spices and fresh herbs. Showing elegant tannins and piquant aftertaste.
