White | Greece
Regular price £15

The Plytó grape variety was saved from extinction by the Lyrarakis family when they planted it in their Psarades vineyard in the early 1990s. Lyrarakis have an amazing track record of producing wines from native Cretan and Greek varieties which punch above their weight. This Plytó is a dry, citrussy, refreshing white of genuine class.

This has some of the herbal character of the Dafni, and lifted aromas, but also more fruit on the nose and a more complex intensity. Slightly peachy but mostly herbal citrus and a stony/mineral undertow. Fuller bodied than the Dafni, with some weight and body from the higher alcohol and fruit depth. This doesn't seem to have the small oak-fermented component of the 2018. Firm, deep and long. A fresh, distinctive white with quite full body and an attractive herbal/sour freshness on the finish. Impressive persistence and purity, as with all the Lyrarakis whites.
