Overview

Santorini Nychteri is one of the most unforgettable, authentic wines one can have on a Global scale. The ample flavor, ripe fruit character, tannic structure, high alcohol and full body, along with the aromas from ageing, make a truly exceptional wine.

Nychteri helps us understand the winemaking methods of Santorini prior to the era of modern winemaking. Selected, over-ripe Assyrtiko grapes from the Northern part of Santorini are being harvested, fermented and matured in old oak barrels for 3 years.

Food pairings with quail, chicken, white meats, truffle dishes and creamy risottos can be divine.
