Assyrtiko that is used for Nykteri comes from our vineyards of Megalochori. The age of the vines is over 50 years old and the yield does not exceed 35hl/ha. Use of overriped grapes harvested at the end of August.
Fermentation in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures. The wine is lead into barrels to finish the fermentation. Then it matures with total lees for 6-8 months. Barrels of French oak, light and medium toasted with a small percentage of new barrel are used.
The oxidative ageing phenomenon that takes place, gives Nykteri a particular character. Complex nose with aromas of ripe citrus, nuts, honey, vanilla and the typical minerality of Assyrtiko. Concentrated body with high alcohol (14%), crispy acidity and long aftertaste.
Fatty fish and white meat.
