Nykteri

PROTECTED DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN SANTORINI

Dry White Wine

Nykteri is the traditional white wine of Santorini, which is produced from extra matured Assyrtiko grapes. Its designation comes from its traditional wine-making, as in the past the harvest took place during the day and the stomping of the grapes during the night.

It is characterized by high alcohol (more than 14%), remaining sugars and long aging in oak barrels. Its colour is gold and its nose of pear and jasmine. It is full-bodied and it can be aged for at least 7-8 years.

Perfectly paired with grilled and white meat, grilled squid, intense spicy flavors and fatty fish. Best served at 12-14oC.
