2022 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.
A clear lemon color of medium intensity. Expressive flowery aromas of jasmine on the nose, along with green fruits, such as green apple and pear on a vanilla background. On the palate it is dry, with crispy-refreshing acidity, in great balance with the delicate floral and fruity flavors. Just an elegant touch of oak, contributes to the overall balance. Long and pleasant aftertaste.
