Plyto

Plyto grape.

Plytó is an old Greek grape variety grown on the island of Crete. Like many native Greek varieties, it was once well known there but had slipped into obscurity by the end of the 20th Century.

Plytó has since been revived by the winemaking Lyrarakis brothers, who grow their vines in high-altitude (1300 ft/400m), low-yielding vineyards. The resulting wine is intensely acidic, with a slight mineral edge. Green-apple, lemon and citrus flavors are commonly noted. Some herbal or grassy notes may also be detected, and the long finish can be slightly bitter or sour.
