2020 vintage
Traditionally Assyrtiko and a dash of Aidani and Athiri grapes were pressed the night after their harvest in order to give the famous Nykteri (stands for staying up all night) wine. Santo Wines Nykteri pays a tribute to this unique wine-making style, with high-alcohol content, great concentration and ripe-fruit character.
Yellow-lemon color of medium intensity with golden hues. The nose is scented with vanilla and oaky aromas, suggesting barrel treatment, followed by elegant notes of citrus and green fruits, pepper and butter caramel. Dry on the palate with lively acidity and complex oaky flavors paired with the fruity character. The aftertaste is long and intense.
