Union of Santorini Cooperatives, Santorini
A multi-variety wine, made from three types of grapes, all from the island of Santorini!
The name "Nykteri" comes from the word "nykta", as in earlier times the pressing of grapes for this wine took place at night - when the temperature was lower- to avoid the danger of oxidation. "Nykteri Santo Wines" is a multi variety wine, made from the famous grape varieties of Santorini, Assyrtiko, Athiri and Aidani. It has aged for three months in a barrel acquiring its aroma complexity which reminds us of jasmin and fruit blossoms, with a touch of pears, bananas and apples. Its rich flavour makes it an excellent companion to grilled fish , smoked cold cuts and Santorini appetizers, like: fava and tomato fritters.
