Liastos

Greek name for a sweet wine produced from dried grapes in the manner of a straw wine, The name derives from the Greek sun god Helios (Helios = sun). Before being pressed on straw mats, the grapes are slowly dried in the sun, which means that they have an extremely high proportion of sugar and extract substances. However, the name may only be used for sweet wines that have not been fueled. Examples are versions of the Samos and the Vinsanto from the island of Santorini.
