dry wine of protected geografical indication
In the wine making history of Crete, there is the symbol shown on the etikett which is similar to the letter h but with 3 legs. It is the ideogram 131 which signifies the concept of wine in two ancient scripts: Linear B and Cretan Hieroglphic.
The wine SYMBOLO is an important milestone in the history of Lyrarakis estate. Exploiting the experience of over 40 vintages in the area, and after a long-lasting search for raw material of exceptional quality, vintage 2019 gave a small quantity of grapes which fulfilled the quality prerequisites for the creation of a wine-symbol.
Beautifully ripened and concentrated grapes of Syrah and Mandilari welcome the vibrant white Vidiano which offers a new face to the blend and firm yet rounder structure.
The grapes were sourced from Lyrarakis' finest vineyard sites, macerated gently and aged for 18 months French and American oak barrels.

Extended ageing of this wine in the bottle, 10 to 15 years, will further mature it.
