Assyrtiko may be one of the better known white wines of Greece... for those in the know. It's crisp mineral-driven style has wormed its way into the hearts of many a Sancerre lover or Gruner fan. If bright, zesty whites with amazing texture and minerality are your jam, don't let this one get away. The Lyrarakis family learned the quality potential of East Crete during the 1970's. Originally on the "Voila" plain and subsequently in the extended surroundings, they discovered exceptional vineyards with sandy soils where Assyrtiko thrives. A pure representation of the grape, this zesty crisp white is the perfect pairing with summer veggies and shellfish. Want to look like a pro? Try it with a tomato and feta salad!
