Lyrarakis Karnari Kotsifali 2016
Aged two years in used barrels. Pale red In colour. This is rich, mellow, warm and spicy with some alcoholic warmth and an oxidative character. It’s rich and spicy with herbs and cherries and a touch of earthiness. Has some sour cherry and wood spice on the finish. A really distinctive wine, a bit like a less alcoholic tawny Port! 90/100 Jamie Goode Review

The red grape variety Kotsifali is indisputably a classic of the vineyard of Crete. Spices and red fruits with an elegant mouthfeel and a piquant aftertaste are the characteristics of the wine which is produced from vineyards situated at 500m. altitude. Enjoy it together with dishes of the mediterranean cuisine, baked meat and spicy cheeses.

The Lyrarakis estate is a family vineyard and winery which has been producing high quality wines since 1966 with a strong focus on rare local varieties, single variety and single vineyard wines. The family is credited with the revival of two ancient Cretan varieties, Dafni and Plyto while a third “vineyard treasure”, the indigenous Melissaki, has recently been added to the credits.

Lyrarakis is located in the mountainous commune of Alagni (440 metres above sea-level), south of the city of Heraklion, in Crete. The soils are predominantly loam with either more sand or clay depending on the vineyard site. The well-preserved 14th-century stone-presses in the fields around the winery are testament to the area’s long history of grape-growing and winemaking. 

In charge of winemaking is Myriam Ambuzer who has been vital in securing Lyrarakis a place in the elite wineries of Greece. Her philosophy emphasises precision, purity and supple texture of the fruit. She argues it is all about expressing authenticity, achieving harmony and that every variety needs to be worked in its own special way.
