Lyrarakis ‘Agourida’ (Verjus) is made from the unfermented juice of unripe grapes, it can be distinguished by its delicate taste with a characteristic light sweetness and refreshing acidity.
In the stunning Lyrarakis winery vineyards in Crete, where rose bushes sit alongside the vines, the grapes are hand picked during the last week of July, known as the Green Harvest. These unripe grapes are then transferred to the winery press and the juice is led into a huge stainless steel tank where concentration is achieved by freezing. This unusual liquid product has a rich nose of red fruits and undertones of mild spice.
