Grape Variety: Assyrtiko

Nychteri was the traditional white wine of Santorini, which was produced by overripe Assyrtiko grapes. During the elaboration of the must, the free-run juice was destined to become Nychteri. The fermentation and ageing processes took place for long periods in old oak barrels, that where rarely being topped up. Thus, the oxidative ageing phenomena took place, giving Nychteri a particular character, similar to Sherry wines. The usual characteristics of this wine were the high alcoholic grades (over 15%vol.) and some residual sugar. Nowadays, we have maintained the above characteristics, apart from the oxidative ageing phenomena.


Yellow color, with golden hues. Complex nose, with aromas of ripe citrus, honeysuckle, nuts and pronounced minerality. It is a full-bodied wine, with complex flavors, balance and some residual sugar, which give a special character to the wine.
