The Nykteri comes from the Assyrtico, Athiri and Aidani varieties. The wine making temperature does not exceed the 18oC in order to be preserved even the most tender aromas of the fermentation. The wine is matured for 3 months at least in barrels. Thus, the wine's contact with barrel's wood gives the Nykteri a special finesse.
