Varieties

Assyrtiko 100%

Vineyard: Old vines more than 50 years old from the area of Megalochori. Use of overripe grapes harvested at the end of August.

Wine making: Fermentation in stainless steel vats. The wine is lead into barrels to complete the fermentation. Then it matures with total lees for 6-8 months in light toasted French oak barrels.

Tasting notes: The oxidative ageing that takes place gives Nykteri a particular character. Complex nose with aromas of ripe fruits, nuts, honey, vanilla and the typical minerality of Assyrtiko. Concentrated body with high alcohol, crisp acidity and long aftertaste.

Food pairings: Fatty fish and white meat

Ageing potential: 8+ years

Production: 5.000 bottles
